“Der Flaneur”

On the one hand side there is the fastest and the most efficiente way to get from A to B in a city. On the other side there are also are a lot of other different options around the area. If you start strolling you veer off the straight way of movement.  So you can discover unknown places and get a better overview of the coherences between the streets.

How does strolling work?

There are a lot of different factors which may lead your way through the city. You perceive your options and than you decide in wich direction your next steps will go. So I want to show those options and decisions instead of  describing a certain way.

I will try to illustrate this complex process by animating a short sequence. In this sequence a little man find his way through a fictive city influenced by all those factors. It can also be seen as a metaphor for your way of life.

The questions I propose:

Why do you always take the fastest way? Is it really the better way?

Is it important to find out other non-descript ways by yourself?

Do you need a direction or an idea of a destination in order not to get lost?
