Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller - Alter Bahnof excerpt

Excited about our forthcoming interview with artist Alana Brown, Redbird has been doing a lot of research on psychogeography, which, if you hadn't heard about before, is all about exploring spaces differently. 

It's about letting yourself wander through spaces, particularly, urban spaces like cities.  Technology is such that is it is hard to find yourself lost in a city.  Quite often we will stick to the same commuter route we know, forgetting that there is always an opportunity to off-road and explore.  Psychogeography is about seizing that opportunity.

So, while we're waiting to talk to Alana about how this impacts on her artwork, please put on your headphones and explore an urban space, in this extract of a beautiful piece by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller.
