alternative routes – Heygate on the move

April 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Heygate, summer 2010: even before the ‘bigness’ of its architecture and the ‘abandonment’ of its spaces, it was the seemingly endless possibility to move about its elevated walkways, spiral ramps and stairs that fascinated me the most: pure perception on alternative routes…

“Perception… is not the achievement of a mind in a body, but of the organism as a whole in its environment, and is tantamount to the organism’s own exploratory movement through the world.” (Gibson, 1979, cited in Ingold, 2000: 3)
