GUY DEBORD THEORY OF THE DERIVE PDF

The art movement in France in the s and s known as the Situationist International believed strongly in the potential of 'drifting' through a city as a means of identifying oneself more closely with a sense of personal and political liberty. Motion through urban space was considered a revolutionary act one which one undertook personally, making notes as one drifted, unfolding secret hidden meanings in the traversed city. Immersive video games also enable this type of drifting, games often build randomness into the rules of play and the abstraction of the board or screen can paralell the structures and activities of everyday city life. An experimental mode of behaviour linked to the conditions of urban society: a technique for hastily passing through varied environments. Also used, more particularly, to designate the duration of a prolonged exercise of such an experiment.

In any case they are never envisaged as depending on causes that can be uncovered by careful analysis and turned to account.

Writings from the Situationist International – Guy Debord

Guy Debord defines a derive as a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiences. People can derive as individuals or as small groups. They leave behind their relations, work, and any other activities, and let themselves be drawn by whatever catches their interest and then experience the encounters they find there.
