My immediate response to this assignment was to look at the area in which I spend the most time – I thought that this would create a very personal response. I am going to be looking at the area around Thicket Road in St Ives. I used to cycle down this route to school every day, as well as using this and the surrounding area to spent time with my friends. Because of this I have seen this area grow and change from day to day and year to year. I have also seen how other people use this area, as well as creating my own experiences here.
The highlighted ared is my square mile.
To start off this project I am going to go out and revisit this area and take some photos taking the time to look closely at the details in order to grasp a full understanding of my square mile. I hope that this will then inspire ideas for this project.
