City Golf

2002, San Francisco, California

 

A system was created to determine specific locations in San Francisco in which to perform various activities.

Each location and activity was determined playing a round of golf at Lincoln Park Golf Course, San Francisco. Using the strategies of the Situationist International, "Psychogeographic guide of Paris" a map of the golf course was superimposed onto a map of San Francisco.

The direction and type of each golf shot determined the location and activity to be performed. Golf shots included straight shots, slices, hooks, out of bounds, duffs, and more The overall score earned at the completion of each hole also determined an activity. For example- pars, birdies and eagles would require simple and pleasant activities. On the other hand, a triple bogie would require the golfer to be dragged an uncomfortable distance.
