Situationists Dérive

Continuing from the previous post, one of techniques in analysing our forgotten spaces involves Situationist  Dérive. I came across an interesting blog with a lot of information and examples of designers and architectures exploring a different take on documenting the experience of place. http://freeassociationdesign.wordpress.com/category/urban-edge/ 

Within this blog I discovered Frank Dresme, he created a fantastic range of images that embraced a different way of navigating the city of Amsterdam. This project was called Project 360 degrees, brought on by his dislike for the trying maps of the city. He created a collage-like image involving all the aspects of his experience through this journey he took, taking into account the environment that caused this experience.

I find Dresme’s work fascinating and will eventually attempt this style of analysis for my final site.
