A Different LENS

Walking piece details

CostFree

A Different LENS is an interactive map on your computer and simultaneously a walk on your smartphone, produced by Elspeth Penfold through the artist group Thread and Word. The map uses locative media.

All you need is a link to visit the map on your computer or to start walking with your smartphone.
Immerse yourself in Milton, poet’s corner, psychogeography, Newgate Gap, James Thurber and personal responses to literature and locations. Experience the coast in a new light, be creative in a new darkness. Connect yourself to Margate through a love of places and storytelling.

A Different LENS is a true community project. Our collaborators include local artists, community groups and all the walkers of East Kent.

We gratefully acknowledge our funders – the Arts Council of England and Wales, Kent County Council and Margate NOW 2020.
This Margate NOW is curated by People Dem Collective, a community group based in Margate that facilitate systemic change, promote healing and continue the work of their ancestors.

Developed with the help of the geolocation and mapping tool CGeomap.
