Walk with Stefania Migliorati
IN ALL DIRECTIONS
Mapping art and creative aggregation in a path of getting lost understood as an adventure.
Trace a personal itinerary in which you are required to carry out the very simple actions indicated in the pdf (link below), such as to turn on the first road to the right, or take the first available street that you have never walked. You will need to get lost, to let it be, to let things happen, and to let meetings take place. Without fear because you’ll learn to extricate yourself and still get to your destination. During the journey, following the directives, you’ll be asked to draw the trailed path and to photograph all those reference points that you’ll build, whether they are people, objects or places, and which will allow you to orient yourself in the city.
Once you are done with the instructions go the project facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/direzionidipercorso/) where you can find also the documentations of other people experiences, and upload your map, your images and take part, if you want, to the dialectical exchange.
Have a nice walk!
A reflection inspired by the book Perdersi of Franco La Cecla about getting lost, housing, the concept of belonging and alienation, about the processes of settling and familirizing that design and build our mental maps.
