Jonny, I really like this 'spatial' or geographical turn that the organism formerly known as alt-worship is taking— all these labyrinths, tours, distributed services . Quite peripatetic, foraging for clues in babel's ground-zero.

Not only is geo-coded worship very now, its deeply embedded in tradition, Michel de Certeau (again!) talks about 'itineraries' becoming replaced by 'maps'. That walking was once inseparable from prayer and place. That stories unfolded as pilgrims moved from site to site, the narrative was the map— very similar to the way GPS, in certain modes, narrate your journey. As in gaming, It's possible to toggle space, birds eye to 1st-person and back again!

It'll be fascinating to see where this all goes? Here's to the NEW itinerants!

Via Luminosa finishes on the 18th April, so two evenings remain, not one! Some pics on Facebook:
