Code for drifting in urban surroundings, 2002
Following these lines of code enables the exploration of an environment with the help of coincidence similar to the Situationists 'thriving'.
Just after having arrived in a city you start the procedure by walking to the Init: e.g. a trainstation or a touristinformation. There you ask a person “Where do you come from?” or “Can you tell me your origin?”. The answer, a more or less detailed location now becomes my destination for the duration of the next 180 seconds. Then I stop moving and ask the next person about her/his origin. The persons answer provides me with a new destination.With the answer I can cast out towards the new direction etc.
