Reading the Elwha

Robin Croen, Jean Ni

What is place? Is it a point in space? A moment in time, a memory, a story, an experience? How can the phenomenological experience of landscape be quantified, recorded, shared? Or should it be at all?

This book/journal maps the socio-cultural and ecological implications of dam removal edge conditions through academic investigation, spatial understanding, and personal notation. The project bridges multiple discipline-specific conventions of education, theory, and research into a tactile strategy of knowledge seeking. The physical craft explores visual research methods of mapping, narrative, immersion, and collective memory.
