Beat a Situationist. At his own game.
25 September 2021 · All day
Part of Sound Walk September
At 11:15 am (UTC):
John Wild will discuss whether the Situationist International’s psychogeographic walking practices can be modified to research the specificity of the digital city. Through the practices of CODED GEOMETRY, a walking collective based in East London that uses performative strategies to develop a digitally expanded psychogeography, the talk will consider the following questions: How does it feel to walk the streets of East London when the city has been expanded by technologies that blur the boundary between the physical world and the digital realm, between physical objects and their representations in the digital field as data?
