Shadow trace to shadow mappings:
an affective modality for critical aesthetics in the Anthropocene.
“This project is a continuing trace of finding, naming, visualising, mapping, and sounding 122 shadow places of the tropical port place of Townsville, Australia. The research trace began in 2011. A once invisible and unknown network of material-capital interconnections, mineral mobilities and ecological interrelatedness is disclosed and described. New embodied stories are emerging” (Boscacci 2016).
