Globalization consists of a network of infrastructures that accelerate the flow of capital, people, products and knowledge and make the distance between places and thus the planet disappear.
In this disappearance of locality, cities compete for attractiveness and attraction and must constantly prove their individuality again.
But how to think the planet without thinking of it as a blue marble from an abstract outside point of view? How to think about the entanglement of all places, but not along the connections of high-speed internet, of flight routes and trade lines?
Based on a thought by MacKenzie Wark, out of a book about computer games: „You can enter a place with your feet and your tongue“, the group ScriptedReality develops mini- lectures, walks through the city. These deal with images that, as in the case of the Frankfurt New Old Town, force their own architectural reproduction, they follow the invisible lines of high-frequency trade through the suburbs, or make contact with ping ghosts that arise in the interference of the layers that the digital creates.
So, from the perspective of walking, a grotesque geography emerges that could serve as a thinking infrastructure of a planetary entanglement, of which we know about, but which must nevertheless be imaged. psychoarchitekturen is an ongoing research project on material and immaterial infrastructures that shape the local and the planetary. The form of the mini-lectures, which can be combined in different ways, is the result of the attempt to work continuously despite uncertain funding structures
