Strolling and observing, the flaneur is therefore a kind of detective of the streets who, by his association with the suspicious circumstances of the public sphere,
comes to be regarded as a conspicuous presence in the crowd himself. The detective approaches the secrets of the city from a double, and often ambivalent, perspective
that circumscribes the flaneur’s existence as well: moving in the streets as an active, observing camera, he becomes a screen on which he projects himself as an observed
medium of modernity. (Gleber, p.16)
A systematic guide to getting lost-perfect! However, to make it more of my own I would use these instructions and apply them in a way that was not originally intended.
I could simply use these instructions as a way to inform my samples (biopsies) from my source material (that giant, poorly processed mural paper). I may have to create my own set, but this is a great jumping off point. I think ideally, I’d also like to use these instructions or instructions inspired by these to navigate my house, and perhaps, somehow incorporate a journey from house to the inside of my mural paper. I’ve also thought of using other images, therefore, other artworks would be the main landmarks used in my navigation.
