Urban codemaking: Troy Innocent

Cities can be sites for self-discovery and transformation; they are also constantly in the process of becoming. Urban codemaking is a framework for decoding and reimagining cities, a programming language for urban space that marks locations in the city using codes enabling multiple alternate readings of that city - by machines, humans, and other entities.

In this workshop, you will learn about urban codemaking - a hybrid street art practice for wayfinding in mixed realities. You will create your own urban code and then explore local streets to find it a semi-permanent home. Processes of fieldwork and documentation will also be explored with the outcomes of the workshop shared on social media. #ludea

Age group

The project is suited to people 14 years or over. 

Bookings ($20.00 per person)

What to bring

Comfortable shoes and be prepared for the great outdoors as there will be some walking required to find your tagging places. You will also need a fully charged smartphone.
