The project will posit a question of how to visualise the creative gesture of a city. Every city has its own creative story. The subject matter to be explored in this project will be curated from recordings of past and present narratives. Data will then be transposed using digital technologies with the aim to present a gallery of coded interconnected emotional information that is revealed from the content of a creative space. Detailed research will reveal the local content, this will include a wide range of creative commentary including, sculpture, poetry, visual arts, architecture, pop culture and film. The information will be treated as datum taken from the city space, which can then be viewed as a creative laboratory or an experimental area. The gesture is recorded with image and sound; though these elements do not have to be presented together in the final piece. The narrative image or trace is revealed when creativity is discussed. Outcomes can include abstract, figurative or typographic results
