Abstract

This thesis examines how to turn space into place. In the digital age, place is more important than ever before. Around the world communities are dealing with the issue of placelessness. The food system has become standardized and suburbia has become a monotonous repetition in cities across the country. As people search for a sense of place in their communities, creation of place can be a tool for exploring these issues. Through experience, individuals can begin to understand and become aware of the place they call home. This thesis discusses three methods for the comprehension of place. They are narrative writing, deep mapping, and photography. These methods provide a catalyst to investigate how a person’s personal experiences, the history of a place, and visual representations of a place can help create a sense of place that can carry into the future.
