To implement the project during the residency, I chose a daily long intuitive drift as a method of work.
Obeying the occasion and the impulses of the territory, I explored the Kotlin Islands (Russia), and then put my routes on a Google map.
The idea of the practice of psychogeography was partially borrowed from the French philosopher Guy Debord, the founder of psychogeographic drift.
