In the first half of 2006 our psychogeographical work was recognized by Bill Humber from the Seneca College’s Centre for the Built Environment and we started collaboration on a “Digital Neghbourhoods Project”. We formed a teams that performed several psychogeographical walks. Participants were couple of people from our group and at least one person living in the area. Technique is quite simple. Group of enthusiasts is walking for an hour or so with a not predetermined plan through the part of the community with eyes wide open and curiosity.
