Bird games
----------------
#1 Hasta la vista pigeon:
make drawings on the square floor using bird feed as paint, watch the pigeons storming in, boldening, enlivening and then erasing your drawing.
#2 When I move you move, just like that:
play with the grey winged beauties as if you were on a gigantic chess board.
#3 Walk like bird, talk like a bird:
be one of the flock, scavenge for tiny seeds, swirl around unaware tourists, try to defecate whilst perched on a small stone edge.

Venice games
---------------------
#1 Run around Venice getting continuously lost in the labyrinth of alleys.
#2 Walk as fast as you can amongst the crowded tourists alleys.
#3 In the middle of the night, drag some chairs from the closed cafes right and place them in the middle of St. Mark's square, facing the church, enjoy a drink in your sumptuous living room.

- from Dade Fasic (Nottingham Psychogeographical Unit)



IN THE CITIES...
I MARK MY DRIFTING WITH THE SURPRISES.
AND THE THINGS I NEVER IMAGINED I WOULD SEE,
BECOME THE LANDMARKS.

- from Vicky Theodoropoulou (Athens, Greece)





The site of Ancient Cathures. Rottenrow, Glasgow.

['The artist is a map-maker. Poetry is a place.' - William Burroughs]

Sydney, built by convicts, their soles still roam the city streets. Take a walk from the city to 'The Rocks' taking particular note of the heritage around you and visit the pubs!

- from Nivelo (Urban Explorer, Urbex)





- these pictures were taken by Pam Longobardi (Atlanta) in response to 'Commuter Belt', a page from A Mis-Guide To Anywhere.
