Fragmented Geographies

Fragmented Geographies was presented as part of Afternoon School at VIVO Media Arts Centre, which ran concurrently with the 2010 Olympics.  The lecture explored psychogeography, dérive/drift, and the right to the city to raise questions around contested spaces, constructed landscapes and temporal infrastructure created by and for Vancouver 2010. Participants were invited to create memory maps of the city, tracing their routes through it to show how mobility was affected by the Olympics. At the end, instructions on how to conduct a dérive through the city were distributed.
