how: Introduction

1 Many separate maps of the Auckland region are developed. Each map has specific kinds of information about the region on it: social, ecological, and cultural.

2 These maps are layered up on top of each other.

3 By connecting information from layer to layer interesting intersections of regional data can be located.

4 The places where these interesting elements intersect are called intensities.

5 Artists, landscape architects and other designers are invited to create site-specific works, called interventions, which play with the special qualities of each intensity.

6 When a number of interventions have been realised they are connected by pathways so visitors can navigate the region from artwork to artwork.

7 Visitors to the artweb website can use the maps on the site to plan tours of the artweb project interventions.
