Remember to keep documenting your habitat. You should upload one picture per day. Look at the blogs of your peers – all links can be found at the end of this page.

Experiment 3: Environmental consciousness
What defines your habitat? Create a Psychogeographic Map of a day–or a week, or two weeks–in your habitat. Use things from your environment like magazines, newspapers, pens, materials, anything analog to create a collage on a tabloid format paper. You might use the internet to research and use a computer to print elements but the final work needs to be a handmade collage using a mix of materials–or at least paper. You can base the map on actual geography but you can also create something completely abstract.
