I’ve not posted anything since starting this blog due to a deluge of non-dissertation related uni work and other commitments. plus I’ve been a bit under the weather *coff coff*. This will be rectified over the coming weeks. In the meantime however I came across this that was posted on Youtube a couple of days ago that I found interesting. It’s a short video of a dérive around Dundee. I found it interesting as it is a mixture of the dérive as both exploration and performance. Some of the shots seem to be deliberately staged where others simply follow the flâneuse as she explores the city. I wonder what effect upon the choice of direction taken the act of filming had. Was the search for particular scenes something that was taken into account as the drift took place?
I’m also rather taken by the method of presentation and the editing and audio dub. Something I would like to incorporate into my dissertation if I have the time.
