Personal Territory

If you’re reading this, I assume that you already know what this project is all about, but if you’ve stumbled across this page and don’t understand at all what this project is I will go ahead and enlighten you (mom). I was given an assignment to pick out my own personal territory and make a series of explorations in this space, as tall as me vertically and horizontally. The place I chose is right outside of Alfred’s campus, its an old abandoned building that used to be called south hall. Here are the directions I gave:

and this is where they will be sitting:

I was also told to make some observations, learn a few things, and really get to know about my personal territory. Here are some things I figured out/thought about while sitting on my throne (aka the concrete steps in front of the doors.) ((These are scans of the fronts and backs of photos I took))

While sitting on the steps of what was once south hall, I did some research on the building, here are my findings.

Pretty interesting stuff. Another part of the assignment was to give my fellow explorers a tool and an activity to do while they got to know my territory. This is what I gave them:

Here is the song they were instructed to listen to:

HauntedHouse – Oh!Hello 

Here are their tools:


and here is the fashionable bindle I made them for all the tools, photos, etc. that I provided:


I really enjoyed this project, and I hope whoever is chosen to take a tour of my territory enjoys it as much as I did.

  1. Very interesting. I’m intrigued by that big safe in picture #2. I wonder if there’s anything inside ??? I’d love to check it out some time!!! Also the “fashionable bundle” reminds me of running away but it is pretty cute!


  2. I like that you did some research on the building. I also liked that you make a more interesting container for your “experience” . I would like to see some pictures and documentation about the tours you went on. Cheers Quade
