WRAPPING UP THE SEMESTER
The Fall ’15 semester has already come to its end and it has been time for wrapping up all the experiences lived in the last four months. As one of her assignments for the class “The city in visual culture”, Hannah (Tulane University) made a project in which she proficiently used the signs where visual culture is produced in Barcelona. Her work encapsulates really well her degree of immersion in the city and works as a perfect summary of this semester that has quickly come to an end.
In Hannah’s own words:
“I wanted to create a spin-off of the 10 B4rc3l0n4s by imaging how the districts of Barcelona could be represented in a museum. I thought it might be interesting to portray them like different rooms, similar to the way in which Gaudí’s buildings are turned into museums. I chose to represent district 1, 6 and 10 (The old city, Gràcia and Sant Martí). In order to create the rooms, I used images that I felt had a strong visual identity when I experience and navigate throughout the districts”.
