Featured Project Description:
SITIO Y LENGUA presents multimodal mappings of Footscray showing how placemaking practices by new immigrants are unconsciously enacted through cultural practices and habits of citizenry from elsewhere. Chicana feminist Emma Perez’s concept of sitio y lengua; translated as ‘space and language,’ is a space of multiple sensory presences, generated by unprogrammed social behaviours. These practices are counter-hegemonic, allowing groups to ‘live inside with difference’(Perez, 1999).
