Last week I asked a few people on Urban Earth and Twitter if they would be interested in taking part in #Urban100, a project that I’m calling an open expedition because it’s going to last a year and anyone can join in. The idea is simple, to collaboratively explore urban places by taking 100 photographs over a 500 metre walk. Using the same stop-motion approach that I used in the Urban Earth films we’ll be able to create films that zoom through the urban landscapes, creating a unique representation of our urban habitats.

#Urban100 is open for students of all ages to join and creates opportunities to discuss place (where will your #Urban100 be and why?), representation (what will and will not be shown of your #Urban100 location?), globalisation and localisation (what connects the #Urban100 locations) and much more. This article on the Geographical Association website includes lots of ideas for using Urban Earth in and outside school/university.

This is a chance to take part in an international, collaborative, open, crowd-based urban expedition. To find out more and to join in visit the Urban Earth website and the #Urban100 Flickr Group. If you’ve any questions do feel free to Tweet me @RavenEllison.

    Hi there

    Would be interested in joining in with the Urban100 project but defeated by the technology and multiple sites – is there a useful link that outlines how many photos and by when.

    Kind regards Alice Griffiths
