PRIOR TO DEPARTURE:
/// Go to Departure Point: The Eros Statue in Picadilly Circus.
1 – DIRECTION: Throw the 2 dice for each line/direction (ex: victoria line sounthbound/victoria line northbound etc..) available from the station you are at. The highest scoring line/direction wins. If there is a tie, throw the dice again only between the equal highest ranked lines/directions until one wins.
2 – NUMBER of STOPS: Throw the 2 dice, the total will determine your number of stops on the selected line/direction.
*** If one of the dice is a 6 at the end of your indicated number of stops, get off the train (not out of the station) and repeat from the DIRECTION step.
*** If one of the dice is a 1 you can get off at any stop you want along the selected line/direction.
*** When you reach the edge of the map, throw a single die and act according to the selected number: 1) get out and drift, 2) go back to departure point, 3) go to a tube station in the inner circle of the map (Edgware Road, Baker Street etc…), 4) select a station through collective vote, 5) travel backwards, 6) end the drift and go for a drink.
3 – DRIFT: Once you are out of the underground, throw the 2 dice and multiply the score by 10 this gives you the amount of minutes you can drift before heading to the nearest station and starting again from the DIRECTION step.
*** During the drift you can simply enjoy what you experience, randomly wandering and/or collect/produce data & artefact such as photographs, videos, found items, texts, field recordings, interviews…
4- DOCUMENTS: if you would like to submit any artefact or data found/created by the drift, please upload it on a free hosting site (soundcloud, vimeo, flickr etc…) and send the link to us HERE with a short (3 sentences max) contextualising text (for instance time and geographical coordinates, description of the place, person, encounter etc…).
*** for added spice, here is a set of missions you can subject yourself to using 1 die – The extra guidelines can be found HERE and you are welcome to submit guidelines for other participants to play with.
Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead!
