1. What is the 4awalk

 

This site is a real space archive on conflicts such as war, terrorism, conflict, etc. People who are authenticated can be posted freely. Each article consists of (1) photograph, (2) overview and meaning, and (3) map.

 

 

2. Functions

 

This site has three functions

1. Preservation

Save the existence of that real space

2. Share

Share the meaning of that real space 

3. Visit

Present a map to visit that real space

 

 

3. Lieux de mémoire (site of memory)

 

The place posted on this site is something meaningful to the contributor. There is a strong intention of the poster to memorize that place and tell it to others before someday gone. In that sense,  this site is related to the notion of "lieux de mémoire" that Pierre Nora pointed out.

 

 

4. Look, recognize, and visit

 

Here we are targeting the real space that you can actually go, looking with your own eyes. Even for descriptions of the same place, the outline and meaning differ depending on contributors, and individual recognition is emerged there. Someone will create new recognition by looking at the article.

 

In the post, we prepare a map to visit the real space. If you have a opportunity, I would like you to visit the actual place. And again, I want you to overwrite the memories.
