[ISEA2010] Paper: Kaspar Wimberley – Homezone


Interactive Documentation / Performance Lecture / Experimental Cartography

Homezone is a walk around the perimeters of my ‘Homezone’, an area in which I can make cheaper telephone calls, defined by the German O2 mobile telephone network and based on my residential address. On the course of this journey I have been documenting what lies directly outside and inside my Homezone, the familiarities and the foreign. I have been collecting objects, thoughts and images from the people and the places that are encroaching into my territory or sitting on my doorstep, piecing together a (sometimes irrational) narrative that documents this journey and the way in which we perceive our neighbouring environments. This experience has been placed alongside theoretical research, and a variety of interviews with architects, historians and politicians that address the sociocultural and political implications that surround the project.

  • Kaspar Wimberley (DE) works as an interventionist, performance researcher and experimental cartographer specialising in site-specific and site-responsive art. Projects are quietly subversive, playfully readjusting the narrative and appreciation of a particular activity or a given site.
