Contactless, a conceptual dérive is inspired by the Situationists idea of the dérive as a weapon against everyday alienation and boredom. The dérive was based on psychogeography, the exploration of urban environments that emphasises playfulness and "drifting”. In today’s situation of shared impossibility of movement, these concepts acquire particular significance.
On the one hand, this project has no pre-defined ending - it buys time… - and aims at the development of a collaboratively-produced fictional narrative where the interaction of distant subjects may contribute to the creation of literary characters or locations. On the other hand, the project will be documented online and may be object of a later artist publication and event.
