Creating a map was definitely the most exciting part of my day. Even though the data collection was somehow time consuming (more precisely in finding information about the location and descriptions of each of the Parisian cities, art and cultural places), it was very interesting and extremely helpful to produce a visual representation of each of them.
In fact, creating this map was helpful as it allowed me to have everything in one place which consequently made aware of spacial dynamics while bringing more meaning to Simeone and Pasler’s readings.
When doing the readings only, I felt that there was so much information to process at once but once all that information was put into a map, it made everything look simpler and for instance made it easier for me to connect all the places mentioned to their respective musical, cultural or historical meanings.
After this first experience with mapping, I am already looking forward to do more mapping !
