Maider López, an artist from the Basque country, Spain, joined us in Huntly in the Autumn of 2010 for a project How do you live this place?. López investigates the relationship between civic/public architecture and the daily movements and routines of the public.

People from the community were given colour-coded stones to be placed around the town in places of personal experience, memory and the feelings associated with place. López produced a map based on these memories and subjective experience. Taking inspiration from Huntly’s 17th Century Cartographer James Legge, she was interested in mapping as a form of subjectivity and the ability of people to map and transform public space.

The Huntly Development Trust, in whose office this work is held, takes a lead in instigating change in the community. This map may serve as a starting point for inspiration.
