I'm embarking on a multi-month exploration of our personal relationships to cities. Working title: City Creature.
I don't need to say much about the changes that are sweeping San Francisco right now; that's a part of my impetus for doing this, as a matter of course. But there's lots more to explore, and I'm excited to begin.
My exploration will take many forms... at the moment I'm fascinated by the ways in which we imagine the places we live to be living beings, and the relationships we have with these imagined creatures. As a first step, I'm collecting the imagined creatures of others. Your imagined creatures.
|These creatures have seen a lot of changes in the Dogpatch|
I love worksheets and forms, so I've created one that you can use to describe your city to me:
I'd be delighted to hear from you.
You can follow micro-blogged moments of my exploration on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook and the like with #citycreature -- you can use it to add to the conversation as well.
