DESCRIPTION

You stand, watching the cars go by. You're not sure where you are, maybe not even where you're going. Perhaps you are with friends, or they could be strangers. Time passes. You change the space by being there, the space changes you.

Spending a long time in one location can give the place new significance, and people may often develop spontaneous games that activate the site.

Inspired by the dérives of the Lettrist and Situationist Internationals. a.a.s invite you to help them search for the city beneath the city. Using a combination of I Ching readings and the Paranoid-Critical Method, and starting from Castlefield, artists and co-participants will explore randomly selected parts of Central Manchester, to reveal hidden meanings. We intend to change perceptions of two selected sites during each outing and occupy those parts of the city for several hours.

To participate, meet at Castlefield Gallery at 11am.

dress for the weather and brightly for safety.
