Street Haunting was a project using illustration to create an imagined storytelling and way-finding system for Central London. It was a collaboration between Central Saint Martins MA students Rebecca Hendin, Turk Jakrapoon, Christina Skarpari, Anran Yu and Kings College London literature PhD candidate Simon Vickery, whose research concerns British literary and architectural modernisms.
Ulatimately, the group worked to create a comprehensive 3D, illustrated way-finding system for Central London, following the path outlined in Virginia Woolf's Street Haunting. It aimed to encourage urban wandering, highlight British cultural history, and to encourage foot travel.
