Walking and talking: Will Self

Carfree chooser Will Self was on Saturday’s Today programme on BBC Radio 4, talking about psychogeography. He described it as “the idea of purposeless transit across the urban context in order to deconstruct the commercial and political imperatives of contemporary space.” Obvious, really. And something to consider next time you’re on a walk. Or a purposeless transit.

On a related theme, he described airports as being designed “to make people bored and make them move forward, like cattle moving toward the bolts that will be fired into their an airport you are basically a cow with a credit card.”   Next time you want to avoid the plane and go by train,  the guys at Loco2  can help.
