The Situationist International movement is inspring it in dogmatic approach to reducing the passive nature of people in their everyday lives. In 2009 the São Paulo-based Ocupeacidade collective created a paper-crafted Volkswagen van with life-size proportions and painted as a real van. Considering the search for meaningful engagement in a society that feels increasingly fragmented, certain aspects of Situationist theory are more topical than ever. 'We demand games with great seriousness', that is the core essence of my research, can we still play (or were we ever able) to play with seriousness? It looked at Guy Debord's Correspondence (Los Angeles: Semiotext(e) 2008) and Tom McDonough's The Situationists and the City (London: Verso 2010). It is an interesting idea to think about maps as both a tool to navigate the city as well as a tool to represent a particular experience in that city. SI member and utopian architect Constant's model of Yellow Sector, from Internationale Situationniste no.4, June 1960, shows the hanging Situationist city where play and residence are united. The latest addition to Mark Shepherd's Sentient City Survival Kit packages up the best lessons of the Situationists into a handy psychogeographical iPhone App. By the end of Savage Messiah, the utopian impulse of Situationist urbanism returns while the city is smashed, and even the police seem to fade into mere afterthought. 70 (2010), I contributed a review, titled 'Situating the Situationists'.
