What is Psychogeography?
Psychogeography is a way of walking, (you may hear the terms derive or drift) which is a creative and playful way of travelling around by foot. This is different to a casual walk or a stroll because the aim is to explore places using ideas and chance or spur-of-the-moment decisions.
