Psychogeographical mapping seeks to reveal the hidden layers of meaning within cities by focusing on how individuals interact with and perceive their surroundings. At its core, psychogeographical mapping rejects conventional cartography's objective representation of space in favor of a more subjective and experiential approach. It explores how urban environments shape human behavior, emotions, and perceptions, often uncovering unexpected connections and narratives. Rather than merely depicting physical features like streets and buildings, psychogeographical maps reflect the psychosocial dynamics of a place, including its history, culture, and social dynamics.


Psychogeographical mapping is an approach to understanding and experiencing urban environments that emphasizes the subjective and emotional aspects of space. It originated in the mid-20th century with the Situationist International movement, particularly through the work of Guy Debord and his concept of "psychogeography."

Psychogeographical mapping employs a variety of techniques and mediums, from hand-drawn maps to digital representations, to capture the essence of a location's psychogeography. Artists, urban planners, and activists use these maps to highlight issues such as gentrification, alienation, and the impact of technology on urban life. By revealing the invisible forces at play in cities, psychogeographical mapping encourages critical reflection and engagement with urban spaces, ultimately fostering a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between individuals and their environments. Overall, psychogeographical mapping offers a powerful tool for exploring the dynamic and multifaceted nature of urban landscapes. It invites us to reimagine cities not just as physical spaces but as living, breathing entities shaped by human experiences and emotions.


My process typically involves walking and observing, as I explore different neighborhoods. By documenting my observations through drawings, photographies, and other mediums, I create disaggregated cartographies of the complex undercurrents of our intimate and collective interactions that exist within these spaces.

I am particularly interested in the ways in which psychogeographical mapping can help us to reimagine living spaces as a site of creative potential and transformation. We can begin to imagine new possibilities for the spaces we inhabit, and to explore new ways of relating to the world around us.

Through my art, I hope to contribute to this ongoing exploration, and to inspire others to engage with the psychogeographical dimensions of their own environment.
