Memory Maps of San Jose

Zero1 Festival

In collaboration with local children and families participating in a two-day workshop, Julie Myers and Dorian Moore will create a series of web based maps that will guide visitors touring San Jose to its lesser known favourite spots, as determined by local city residents. Locations identified on these maps are not necessarily tourist destinations or well known public venues.

Locations found on these maps are significant because they are personal (secret) places, where city locals might stop for food, or to remember an event, or to meet a friend.

Using images tagged with GPS coordinates, these personalised maps invite us to discover an alternative portrait of the City.

After the workshop (31st May - 1st June 08) maps will be available for download at the following link:
