A few months ago we looked at a subject called psychogeography which is a bit of a trendy word to describe the emotional effects that places have on us. If you search google you’ll find loads of stuff under the heading, and there are many books that fall into the category. Edgelands is one we looked at. We’ll post the handoouts we looked at soon. Whatever some of the more bizarre stuff found under the heading, all of us will recognise that certain places can have definite effects on our feelings, and this seems especially true of derelict buildings like the ones shown here.
There’s also urban exploration or UrbEx which can involve exploring anything from derelict buildings to long forgotten tunnels. Again, a quick google will give you a good idea.
In the gallery here, Mark just happened to be a-wandering and decided to explore this fine piece of derelict architecture on Scotland Road.
