Zoe Chan: psychogeographer: geography / topography / psychogeography
I have a deep interest in ‘sense of place’; how our environment impacts on our being and memory, and in turn how we impact on it – particularly (but not exclusive to) the urban and the built environment. Within this I further explore psychogeography, hauntology, the primal landscape, and non-place and liminal space. This is currently manifested by documenting my walking / dérives, predominantly via photography and journaling. Other interests: architectural history and type in the environment.

I try to walk most days. This is for health, fitness, observing, thinking, taking photographs, note making. I am a beginner writer and love being outdoors.

Claire Collison: cross-disciplinary: geography / topography / psychogeography
1. Writing the City – designing walking and writing days with prompts to generate new writing. 2. Intimate Tours of Breasts (ITOB) looking at the ways breasts are represented and commodified around us, from street to museum, and reflecting on how this impacts on the way we feel about our own bodies, and the choices we make (eg whether to have reconstructive surgery, post-mastectomy). I’ve delivered ITOB in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, and Peterborough, and am interested in creating more.

She lives in a six-acre patch of boreal forest that has been the focus of her work since 2002, called The Boreal Poetry Garden.

These events have been attended by over 900 people. Interviews with Marlene can be found on Imprintable and Walter’s Wanderings.
