Meanderings may seem fairly leisurely and not the least bit political, they propose the radical idea that ways of being in physical space (particularly in the cities) are political acts. The confluence of the détourne and the dérive manages to territorialize the visual. The spectacle is a territory. The city is a spectacle. Both tactics, dérive and détourne, take trespassing as their essential character. They must cross into the territory of others, whether these are the advertisements of Nike or the orderly storefronts of Paris, to produce new meanings.
