This post is the first in a three part mini-series on digital dérive, an idea I have been playing with lately.

This particular dérive first appeared in my twitter stream in February, but this is the first time I have published it all together in one place.

For another example, see: Dérive Does Dallas: Fair Park Edition.

The swordfish however were given a shrine at a surprisingly delicious sushi restaurant.

Walls of the Owens Thomas house 18-24in thick, keeping the interior largely intact during mythical creature wars. Note crack in amberglass.

But it was likely the gun by the door that kept the wolves at bay. #impromptuSavannahDerive

Andrew Low preferred feet of his furniture carved into the shape of a beehive rather than the paw motif.

Today only the alligators remember the rest, but despite the lemonade, they’re not talking.

What do you think?

  1. Interesting little motif you’ve constructed… I can imagine a little post-frame photo with the caption “And little did the deer know that the stream they were drinking from was infested with the alligators, still ‘sour’ from their previous escapades…”
