This Tuesday we’re going on a dérive, starting on foot from the Long Haul. We’ll leave at 8:15.
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.
If you have a few minutes, read the rest of Theory of the Dérive by Guy Debord. It’s a quick read.
