Dérive

Added February 27th 2006 @ 12:21 am

Among the various situationist methods is the dérive [literally: 'drifting'], a technique of transient passage through varied ambiances. In a dérive one or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there.

One can dérive alone, but all indications are that the most fruitful numerical arrangement consists of several small groups of two or three people who have reached the same awakening of consciousness, since the cross-checking of these different groups' impressions makes it possible to arrive at objective conclusions.

The full text...

Undertake a dérive, and report your objective conclusions to your fellow players.

Secret Wall Tattoos

Added by Lank June 27th 2007 @ 10:50 pm

Be inspired by this website to make some hidden art in a place that is not your own.

To clarify, secretwalltatoos.com displays works of art (paintings and drawings) that lie hidden behind objects such as mirrors, photographs, and paintings. Hiding such art - on the wall, and not in your home or place or business - is your goal

Tourist Infiltration

Added by Ben Yamiin August 3rd 2008 @ 4:48 pm

Infiltrate the tourist industry in your city.

Pack enough for a night and a day and head to a transportation hub, like an airport, train station or bus stand. Head into the city and rent a room or bed at a hotel or hostel. Stay the night, and the next day, indulge yourself in the tourist activities of your city.

Conglomerate with other tourists as much as possible.

Do not, for any reason whatsoever, reveal that you are a local or anything but a tourist.

Urbane Exploration 1

Added by teucer September 28th 2008 @ 9:03 pm

Find a building which is in active use. Explore it thoroughly and get to know its secrets.

Politely talking your way into the heart of the building is an excellent way to understand its psychogeography, and see how it affects those who occupy it. Your interactions with the building's owners and inhabitants (employees, residents, etc) are to be strictly positive; recruiting the authorities as guides is a far, far better thing than being ejected by them.

Completing this task in proper exploring attire, which may include such accoutrements as a waistcoat or a monocle, will likely result in additional votes.

Journey To The End Of The Night Milano 2011 (Italy)

Added by gato fetz July 15th 2011 @ 1:54 am

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

If you participated in this Journey in any way (as a player, chaser, or volunteer), document your experience.

Exquisite Dérive

Added by Bex. April 10th 2008 @ 3:25 am

Go on a walking journey and every fifteen feet draw a chalk arrow in the direction you're going. At the end of the trip, leave a big pile of chalk so a stranger can continue your journey.

OR

Walk a short route alone, then send a collaborator the last segment of your trip so that they can pick up where you left off. You may complete this in separate cities by using more generic instructions (e.g. walk three blocks, then turn left). Finally, walk the complete route you and your collaborators have created.

Mihi

Added by Mr Everyday October 25th 2008 @ 7:15 am

In Maori culture, when you formally introduce yourself in a meeting house it is called a "Mihi". You tell people your canoe, tribe, sub-tribe and family, but you ALSO identify specific geological features to which you "belong". For example, "your" lake, mountain, river, forest etc.

Chose at least three geographical features that you consider "yours". Document them.

Mayor Daley's Graffiti Busters

Added October 29th 2005 @ 12:00 am

Take back your neighborhood! Paint over some advertising; ideally, this involves matching the color of the surface the ad is posted on, but an alternative is to use industrial, drab grey. Under no circumstances should you paint over advertising with anything but a solid color. Easy targets are iPod or movie posters on vacant buildings. Bonus points for hard targets like bus station ads or billboards. Before and after photos are, of course, a must.

Good Luck!

Added by done November 14th 2008 @ 4:54 am

Plan a trip to an exotic place (maybe on the other side of the planet) you've always wanted to visit. Then go and buy a lottery ticket.

If you win, do the trip and document.
If you don't win, fake photos, souvenirs and memories.

Image Your City

Added by praximity August 12th 2008 @ 7:56 pm

With the help of your neighbors, make a map of your neighborhood. Include as much local knowledge as you can.

For example: where does it smell nice? Where do panhandlers set up? Where do people tend to stop and chat? Where do you need to watch for broken sidewalks or dog piles? What's the name of the man who runs that sandwich shop or corner store?
