Looking at Guy Debord, and the theory of psychogeography in the context of Pembrokeshire. Debord defined psychogeography as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals.” He advocated deviating from our daily routines and allowing ourselves to wander, people are so often focused on getting to their destination that they don’t pay attention to their surroundings. In Pembrokeshire when we were walking, there wasn’t a destination as such, therefore the focus was on the process of walking. (in the present)
This work is a development of the map drawings I created at the start of the year.
I have been drawing from memory, retracing the routes taken in Pembrokeshire, Neath, Port Talbot and Liverpool. They can be read as the documentation of wanderings around the city rather than as a geographically accurate map.
