|An example of mapping of atmospheric
unities of a city on the basis of ideas of the international Lettrist and
Situationist movement. The map of Paris has been cut up in different areas
that are experienced by some people as distinct unties (neighbourhoods).
The mentally felt distance between these areas are visualized by spreading
out the pieces of the cut up map. By wandering, letting onself float or
drift (dériver is the French word used) each person can discover
his or her own ambient unities of a specific city. The red arrows indicate
the most frequent used crossings between the islands of the urban archipel
(seperated by flows of motorized traffic).
