  1. Psychogeography? Tim Waters tim.waters@geoiq.com
  2. Psychogeography What's it all about?
  3. Quick Definitions Its the effect of place on the brain. It is the poetry of places. The study of the specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organised or not on the emotions and behaviour of individuals. Ley lines, folklore, biography of people in place. Techniques to explore and extend the imaginative, experiential qualities of urban and other landscapes, as part of a wider attempt to achieve a revolutionary transformation of everyday life, the emotional and behavioural effects of the environment, and its ambience; 'cognitive mapping' (the city in our heads, with the places that have specia lmeaning for us); and what might more prosaically called 'local history'.
  4. Experienced / Practiced Get outside – exploration Derive – rapid passage, drifting. Strolling To transform a place, our perception of a place, and therefore the world. Experiencing place not in the same way as everyone else. Unique perspectives. Drunken Situationists in Paris
  5. Here be tortoises
  6. Debord
  7. The Theory of the Derive One of the basic situationist practices is the dérive [literally: “drifting”], a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiances. Dérives involve playful-constructive behavior and awareness of psychogeographical effects, and are thus quite different from the classic notions of journey or stroll. In a dérive one or more persons during a certain period drop their relations, their work and leisure activities, and all their other usual motives for movement and action, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there. Chance is a less important factor in this activity than one might think: from a dérive point of view cities have psychogeographical contours, with constant currents, fixed points and vortexes that strongly discourage entry into or exit from certain zones.
  8. Cindi Katz: the Hidden Consequences What does it mean for space to hide consequences? What are the politics of either living with or confronting this condition? If one of the tasks of critical geography is to analyze the historical geographies of capitalist development, it is important to examine the historical geographies of contemporary capitalism as part of this project. Just as radical histories engage with standard histories to exhume forgotten and erased histories and social actors, radical geographers confront the power of geography to eclipse particular people and material social practices.

  12. We define ourselves by our surroundings and our situations. If you are brought up in a neighborhood that resembles a rat trap, pretty soon you are going to come to the conclusion that you are probably a rat. If on the other hand you have got to the tool of psychogeography — or poetry, then you can look at the ordinary world around you with the eye of a poet. If you have that kind of insight into the tawdry and debased streets in which most of us spend our lives, then instead of walking down a rat trap you are walking through cataclysmic history, from your personal memories to the local legends then the rat trap becomes a fable, a mythological landscape. And just as living in rat trap will give you the impression you live in a rat trap, then l suspect that living in a mythological landscape might after a while give you the subliminal impression that you are at least a mythological figure. A heroic character in your own narrative
  13. Some Examples.......
  14. To remap the area of High Wycombe - a psychogeograpical event, a walk, a ‘derive‘ within the boundary of the re-development area, the results of which will be used to animate the town centre with a temporary art installation. The aim of the LunchTime Dérive was to study how, by following a simple instruction, a group of workers could re-experience thae town during their Lunch Break. The daily hun for a prawn sandwich or ChickenTikka Masala Ready Meal will be replaced with a drift motivated by following a basic algorithm Left left right
