Multisensory journeys through memory

Sensational Urban Walks uses personal memory and narrative to develop 2-3 urban walks. Starting with one space and memory, Jalila is developing associations for each of the five senses around Casablanca; each walk will be a sensorial experiment (including sights, smells, sounds, gastronomy tasting). The aim is for each walk or tour to last an hour and a half with a small group. She will create both a physical and digital map based on the isolation of these elements and routes. The former will incorporate images and elements that represent her memories and the second will incorporate links to digital references to these items.
