Wandering, in the context of the urban, is a way of seeing. As a semester project, Wandering is becoming a base for discussion about a methodology to analyze fragments in a process of “discontinuity”. Countless urban scenes are divided into different fragments and scenes again. The project is an experimental attempt.
When people walk in the city, their sight falls on a certain point in an urban context consciously or unconsciously, and they remain in a certain scene for a long or a short period. The point of sight goes from one point to another, and then again to other points. These points of sight change with different scenes while walking. The points create a new scene and new scenes. These reconstructed scenes not only provide a visual immediacy1 but also generate from a completely personal experience.
In this project Wandering is adding to an important discussion about a methodology of trying to analyze fragments in a process of “discontinuity”2. Countless urban scenes are divided into different fragments and scenes again. They are interlaced, overlapping or disappear in the urban. Presumptions and ignorance have become clichés in such a process. Therefore, the project is an experimental attempt. These obvious flaws and clichés have become interesting points worth exploring in the process.
