Description: How can an individual’s experience of a city be visually represented in a portable, transferable and efficient manner?  Can idiosyncratic colour schemes, surface relief, sounds, tastes, smells, movements and words be captured, identifying unique characteristics of place?  The Action Researcher/Performer recorded in her diary proportional colour schemes from twelve streets in different boroughs of New York.  These sketches were then transferred onto A4 panels using a grid format, each square painted with the matching colours viewed in order of progression when walking earlier in the day.  See City Captured 1.
