Psychogeography Walks - Neighbourhood Portraits
  We are starting in May 2017 process of creating specialized pages for our Psychogeography walks – neighbourhood portraits. Bellow is a list of all our portraits, and bellow that list and some links to the earlier attempts.   PSYCHOGEOGRAPHY IS [our definition]:

"The subjective analysis, mental reaction, to neighbourhood
behaviours related to geographic location. A chronological process
based on the order of appearance of observed topics, with the time
delayed inclusion of other relevant instances"

  Participant in some of
our walks described our
intentions in his article about
psychogeography like this:
in discovering a small world
we discover the whole world.

Participants were couple of people from our group and at least one person living in the area. Technique is quite simple. Group of enthusiasts is walking for an hour or so with a not predetermined plan through the part of the community with eyes wide open and curiosity.
