Guy Deborg, essays:
Theory of the DĒrive
One of the basic situationist practices is the dĒrive [literally: "drifting"], a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiances. DĒrives involve playful-constructive behavior and awareness of psychogeographical effects, and are thus quite different from the classic notions of journey or stroll.
