For the past 24 years the remnants of the Central Freeway have been slowly erased from the landscape of the City. Does the freeway still retain a presence through absence? I aim to address this question by repeatedly walking the path of the old Central Freeway and – with a rigorous and focused eye – document what I see. My research began in October of 2012 and I plan to execute multiple walks a week until early May 2013. I will catalog the places, changes, patterns, and encounters that I observe using a wide range of media including sketching, video and photography. The insights gained from walking and documentation will help to define lenses that enable me to better understand as well as visualize “place.” Changes take place at different rates: years, months, days, minutes, and seconds. My “made work” will look to devise methods for visualizing rates of change within urban environment and, included in the outcome, will be a design methodology that can be applied to other areas. The intended audience would be urban planners, local historians, and fellow designers interested in the urban environment.
