The Dérive – the French word for an aimless stroll or drift – casts the city as a network of narratives, of experiences and events. “To dérive is to notice the way in which certain areas, streets, or buildings resonate with states of mind, inclinations, and desires, and to seek out reasons for movement other than those for which an environment was designed. It is very much a matter of using an environment for one’s own ends...bringing an inverted perspective to bear on the entirety of the spectacular world...”
- Guy Debord
