Here we have another possible representation of a landscape. It’s taken from Google Maps shows the south west part of Sheffield. What have we here? This view is actually quite alien to us even if we recognise what it shows. Apart from being up in a place we never really get to see something like this, a high cliff will generally give us an oblique view of the majority of the vista and only small area will be truly vertical.
How does this differ from the other depictions that are on ShELP? Answers on a postcard, or purely for your ease, you can write them below, go on!
If you’re from Sheffield do you recognise this area? Does this sort of image seem ‘colder’ or more distanced than the other pictures? Can you imagine yourself strolling about here or can this view only be for navigation? Is it just a matter of scale as to how you can picture yourself moving within it? Or is this something else entirely? A capitalist response to questions of ownership that only really matters in the post industial West?
I don’t know, so please help me!!
