Sailortown dérive

As part of the third session in our go beyond art public art module we took students on a half day dérive in Sailortown. A dérive is an unplanned journey through a landscape (usually urban) in which participants drop their everyday relation and ‘let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there’.

Using methods developed by The International Peripatetic Sculptors Society (IPSS), students responded to the area and created images and temporary interventions in the Sailortown landscape.
