Psychogeography Walks - Neighbourhood Portraits
 
  We started in May 2017 process of creating specialized pages for our Psychogeography walks – neighbourhood portraits.

Bellow is a list of all our portraits including some early 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"
– Toronto, 2007

Read our paper: "Psychogeography, window to the urban future".

In June, 2015 book myPSYCHOgeography was published. You can preview whole book and order it HERE.

  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.
