Summer and Fall 2010, 3Cs collaborated with students at Queen Mary University in London to produce Counter\mapping QMary: finding your way through borders and filters. The map + board game tracks border policy, labor conditions on campus, resistance movements, and helps us re-orient ourselves within, against and beyond the filtering mechanisms of the modern British research university. All with rad techno-baroque stylings! This map was inspired by all those who resist the border, our experiences of education and our migrations from various locations on and off it.
Over the spring and summer of 2006, 3Cs worked in collaboration with other campus and community groups to produce the first disOrientation map to UNC. Designed for incoming first-year undergraduate and graduate students, as well as new faculty, the map details UNC’s local and global ties, decentering the notion of the university as “ivory tower” and positing overlapping and conflicting notions of UNC as “… a functioning body,” “… a factory,” “… producing your world”. The map also contains gobs of useful information about courses offered at UNC, interesting community groups, even coffee shops!
