Fieldnotes from It Just Tastes More
“If I was to visit your hometown, what would you want me to bring back for you?” In the summer of 2019, I asked London-based Europeans that question and then travelled across Europe attempting to find the thing they want in order to better understand place, movement, and the sense of belonging. Along the way, I recorded fieldnotes and was in correspondence with Juliet Sprake. It just tastes more is that body of research.
This body of research was further developed into the audio and writing project To Bring Back and was also the springboard for a course taught at Goldsmiths University of London titled Seat Change. Seat Change was a course involving choosing a field of interest, recording fieldnotes while in it, and maintaining correspondence with a partner throughout the process of investigating the chosen field.
Shown here are pages from my fieldnotes.
