This page begins to explore the disciplines that could use the twalk methodology and the nature of the physical space in relation to this.
First, let’s look at a few examples where the actual physical location would be significant, and where the space itself matters and is imbued with meaning, e.g.,
- Learning spaces
- Architecture and the built environment
- Disciplines which use fields trips and placements
Less obviously perhaps, #twalks can be used as artistic devices and places of enactment, e.g.,
- Situated poetry #twalks for collaborative writing projects
- Art & Design or Media forays for capturing, seeding and growing idea banks or developing projects
- #twalk debates with proposing and opposing groups physically located in different places but responding to the same structure via the tweetchat
- Historical enactments
The use of metaphor in the landscape really opens the method to any discipline potentially.
- Doors – opening of ideas
- Corridors – passage of time, enclosure
- Windows – the world beyond
- Fields – growth, seasons, ecologies
