Associative context

Focus on a wasteland's feature or detail and find correspondencies with the sites surroundings.

Relocate the findings in a larger context: the community, the area, the city, etc. around the wasteland and freely associate the elements:

Is there a 'story' to tell? What could it possibly inform strangers to the wasteland about its context?

About the people that live there, about their dreams and aspirations.
