darqueau commented on the word dérive
“A technique of transient passage through varied ambiances. The dérive entails playful-constructive behavior and awareness of psychogeographical effects; which completely distinguishes it from the classical notions of the journey or the stroll.�? -Guy Debord, Theory of the Dérive.
