THE TASKSCAPE OF THE FOREST

" (...) tasks are the constitutive acts of dwelling"

"(...) the landscape as a whole must likewise be understood as the taskscape in its embodied form: a pattern of activities 'collapsed' into an array of features." 

 

Tim Ingold, The temporality of the landscape

The taskscape of the forest is a research project that investigates peoples relationship with forests through the lens of personal "taskscapes". The project is a narrative about the activities that constitute and shape this relationship. Furthermore the aim is to design a taskscape for (future) owners of small forests.

The research is informed by both personal research in the forest of Anna's family, as well as the documentation of other 'personal forests' and their owners tasks.
