Fifteen minutes of fame?

Sitting at home recovering from doing half of Manchester Sunrise (proper blog about that later in the week), and found out to my delight that we’ve made it into the pages of the New Statesman. Looks like we’ll get a mention in a book too.

I particularly like this comment about online psychogeographers: ‘these bloggers tend to be collaborative and tentative, more willing to explore mundanity for its own sake. For them, the city does not yield up its psychogeographic secrets readily; sometimes a bus shelter is just a bus shelter, not a site of ancient or occult significance.’ 

Amen to that.

The mother of zedding’s handy tips

By Liam

As we mentioned at some point before, Rosie the inventor of Zedding has been getting students to do random urban wanders.

She prepared a nice set of questions which kind of sum up the stuff we look for when zedding:

  • How do people use public space in the city?
  • Who is present or absent?
  • How do the different urban spaces make you feel?
  • What messages are present? (e.g. graffiti/advertising/political debate)
  • Are there any signs of ‘sacred space’?
  • What was the most surprising thing you saw or heard?
  • Did anything make you laugh?
  • What was the strangest conversation you had or overheard?
