YOU could be a winner too!

So, the games have begun!

I put up a challenge last week to all in the community- how to explain the game of Tetris in a dramatic script. We had some great suggestions and our lucky winner was Mick Greenway! A bottle of red is on it's way to him.

Here's the link if you want to have a read-…

Day 121 - Murder on the streets of London - on the floor of my office, Aberystwyth

With his gothic descriptions of London in the grip of fog, locations dis-connected, a haze, a dreamlike sense of place, Robert Louis Stevenson may have been the first psychogeographer. A year after the publication of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Jack the ripper may have been the first 'psycho' geographer. I wonder whether my new reading position on the floor of my office might be a cause for concern for anyone that were to pass by and peer through the window to see… Continue

Day 120 - The abandoned farm - Esgair Fraith

Trust the map in your mind. Trust it when it tells you to turn right even when the OS map said to turn left. Trust the map in your mind when it says that somewhere on the left you will find a parking place, and that after that it will only be a short walk to your destination. Trust the map in your mind... unless of course you didn't trust yourself on the first… Continue

From Barmouth to Kosovo

On Friday morning, after the excitement of the first public performance of For Mountain, Sand and Sea on Thursday, I set off from a deliciously sunny Barmouth, via Manchester and Zurich, to Pristina,Kosovo. I’d been invited to talk at an event at the National Theatre of Kosovo, which seemed too interesting a proposition to miss.

I arrived in Kosovo after midnight. The arrival hall of the airport resembled an old aircraft hangar… Continue

Day 119 - The Speckled Ridge - Somewhere near Tregaron

Esgair Fraith, a ruined farm in west Wales, was the site for a series of deep mapping projects between Mike Pearson and Michael Shanks. This included the large scale site-specific work Tri Bywyd. More info on the project and deep maps can be found at http://documents.stanford.edu/michaelshanks/95.

This morning Sam and I are going to try and find the farm so that I can practice a few different mapping…

Day 118 - destructive british media - Bloemfontein, South Africa

Regardless of how much I was paid I am not sure that I would cope with the enormous pressure that was placed upon English players during this world cup. A 1-1 draw with the USA was apparently a disaster, the beginning of the end for Capello's men, and a 1-0 win over Slovenia was apparently a sign that we were now ready to go on and win the cup. Neither of these assumptions were correct. It seems that the English fear of taking penalties has now seeped into their football playing at a national… Continue
