Between the end of March and beginning of May 2020 strict Covid-19 restrictions were introduced in the UK. During this time I was living in Manchester and, like many people, utilised my ‘one permitted daily exercise’ to go for walks. However, these walks were drifts, inspired by psychogeography among other things. Breaking routine I would go down many paths and portals, delve beyond the surface of urban and suburban areas, question neoliberalism and scour the remnants of un/forgotten (waste)lands. Each time I returned from these everyday adventures I would use what materials I had in my room (magazine, scissors, glue and a typewriter) to quickly create collages that would in some way attempt to represent or tell a strange story of these drifts. I collated these pages into a zine, which can also be used as a mis-guide for people.
Rik Fisher does a variety of projects, often exploring how walking/play can be an accessible tool for people to be creative, critical and radical. Rik also works with collage and often disseminates work in zines, which can be used themselves as misguides. Rik is part several collectives and collaborates with various other groups.
