I’ve recently been looking into psychogeography and found this. It’s a collaborative situation based poetry event based in Sheffield in 2007 by Paul Conneally and Anne-Marie Culhane called Circle of Fire. They have taken the renga form typically created in a fixed space to a series of places along a path from Weston Park Museum to Crookes Quarry Allotments to create a more experienced, inhabited poetry.
Since this Renga Ramble is inspired and recreating part of Sheffield I thought it must bring some of the unique elements of our great city to life and might help in getting a better picture of the Sheffield urbanscape and as such should be used within ShELP.
So, how does this depiction of Sheffield make you think about the city? Is it a good way of describing the town, or is it too subjective? Is the map above important for the Sheffield and Environs Landscape Project or could just the words be used? Is it all too general and could be applied to anywhere?
