Artist Christian Nold worked with different neighborhood groups to explore the area afresh and build an emotion map of the area that explores people’s relationship with their local environment. The project was set up as a series of participatory workshops that invited people to borrow a Bio Mapping device and go for a walk. The device measures the wearer’s Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is an indicator of emotional arousal in conjunction with their geographical location.
