Course description

Short Course - Investigating Place with Psychogeography

How do different places make us feel and behave?

Psychogeography is both a way of moving through an environment; and a framework for creative practice. You can explore the possibilities of navigating place and occupying space. Your own creative work will drive your understanding of the concepts of psychogeography, whether poetic, political, or absurd. You might traverse urban spaces, domestic sites, histories, sites, edgelands and margins, online, offline, 2d and 3d, and more.
