Detours2London is an artist-led walking project to map and create an urban and semi-urban walking trail through London. The route hacks into existing footpaths and ways. Initial mapping will look at ways of thinking about Urban Space as an other environment: the potential shape and direction of walking route/s; how we can see the city and use it in different ways; how we can encourage artistic, (experimental & ecological) approaches to, and other ways of being in and intervening in the city.
This project evolves out of De/Tours in Marseille see www.decentrederspace.org and the GR2013 (National walking trail through Marseille/France) see: http://www.mp2013.fr/gr2013/en/ . It plots a new path through and out from the centre of the City: in a spiral that turns through London five times towards its final destination at Gravesend – Inspiral London 2015. Further announcements in May 2015.
