Algorithmic Walking is the walking of a given algorithmic route with an associative-documentary approach. The work focuses on the construction of images of my subjectively lived, experienced and perceived landscape, constructed as a walker, on site and from my memories.
After discovering the "Situationist International" and dealing with their theories, the "dérive" and the "psychogeography", I accidentally found this special algorithm, which can be described as the core zone boundary of the Wiener Linien ticket, which I subsequently followed.
Spatial perception and the construction of possible spaces are combined and expanded into images with the help of installative and performative elements as well as associations (that come with walking). Like a memory in itself, the images of the route are altered, sometimes before the camera or after scanning the medium format negatives on the computer.
Algorithmic Walking seeks to challenge our assumptions about constructions of reality. The work refuses to accept what is seen and perceived as stringent, evident and real, and creates images that negotiate these questions.
