Above is Club Labrynth by Sam Roberts from Ghostsigns who came along to Sunday’s Dalston Type Safari. He explains that “For me, Club Labrynth is the earliest memory I have of Dalston as a destination. Back in the mid-1990s it was the weekly hardcore/jungle night at the legendary Four Aces nightclub… The provocation of memory was an unexpected aspect of the Type Safari, and there were other long-term Hackney residents on the walk sharing their own recollections.”
“The interactive component of hunting down letters for my phrase made the safari a very personal (and creative) experience. I saw lots that I had never noticed before, including a few painted examples, making it a fun, informative and participatory talk and walk.”
Above is Sebastian Juhnke’s ‘Regeneration’, also from Sunday’s Dalston Type Safari. Sebastian’s a PhD student in Sociology conducting a comparative study on creative professionals in multicultural neighbourhoods: Dalston/Hackney in London and Reuterkiez/Neukölln in Berlin (his hometown). If you’re interested to talk to him about his research tweet him at @SebastianJuhnke.
Below is Karina Monger’s ‘Ilfracombe is a curious place’ which she created when visiting home at the weekend “I’ve done my #typehomework! Here’s the phrase to sum up #ilfracombe #devon my hometown.” Charming to see the contrast between transforming Dalston and historic Ilfracombe.
