I was out yesterday (21/09/2010) afternoon, walking between the O2 Arena (Millennium Dome) and the Thames Barrier, with Lucy Greenwall, for the Guardian’s audio department. I think the piece will become a pod cast. A whispering, voice-in-the-ear nuisance to inform or irritate your own tramp along this route.
Long overdue, thanks to Gino Brignoli, here is a link to the podcast of this event.
Psychogeographer and author Iain Sinclair and avant-garde academic Stewart Home are here to talk about London as an ever-changing environment.
They will be exploring the architecture and cultural make-up of our capital in relation to a city that is essentially restless and continually evolving. Sinclair’s writing has often focused on London; his latest book,Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire, is a personal record of the area he has lived in for the past 40 years.
