The intention of the project is to create an online experience that is based on the theories of the Derive. It is an online documentary that is filmed/recorded while drifting through streets of the Sydney Suburb, Glebe.
Our aim, is for the user to explore and discover the Glebe locations through a process that reflects the ideas of the Situationists. This process involves a heightened sensory awareness of one's surroundings when going for a random walk. This differs from a casual stroll in that the "derive" or "drift" in that habits are broken and experiences are attained.
A central theme that we investigate includes the experiences derived from random exploration which is executed without a proposed destination. To emphasize this, the display order of the "locations" and their in-between transitions are randomized. Thus, the experience changes each time this work is re-visited.
