Dr Silvia Loeffler is an artist, researcher and educator in Visual Culture based in Dublin. Most of Silvia’s work deals with the emotional scanning or deep-mapping of spaces. Drawing and writing, as writing means to draw with words, are her guides to establish a narrative of public intimacy. Silvia is currently lecturer in Visual Culture at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD). She also teaches “The Psychology of Space” in the Department of Landscape Architecture at University College Dublin (UCD) and “Applied Culture & Heritage” at IT Carlow (Wexford Campus).

She was Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Research Fellow 2014-16 at Maynooth University, Ireland, in Geography, for Glas Journal: A Deep Mapping of Dún Laoghaire Harbour , an interdisciplinary participatory arts project based on concepts of belonging and the multiple meanings of ‘harbour’. For 2017, Silvia was commissioned by Dublin Port Company to work on her artistic cartography called Transit Gateway: A Deep Mapping of Dublin Port , which comprised a large scale arts installation in the Terminal 1 Building of the Port and a public seminar series in the LAB Gallery, where the port installation was also on loan from 18 January – 04 March 2018.

    Silvia – this is very exciting work and seems close to the methodology I have been developing for my research on Nantes. I call it archaeological topophonics and use voice recording to produce Way-tales, or récits de voie in French. If you are planning a conference or presenting a paper anywhere please let me know. I would love to hear more on your work. My papers are all on ResearchGate.

    Good luck with your upcoming projects
