Urthona has always been a champion of psychogeography. Like psychotherapy psychogeography inhabits the uncertain border between science and art. It is the exploration of landscape and nature as a mapping of the psyche, in which inner terrain becomes outer terrain and vice versa, and in which the structures of society are experienced by the act of walking the land.

A few years ago we interviewed the celebrated nature writer Robert McFarlane, and asked him about his psychogeographical influences. To reach this go to URTHONA SHOP above and order issue 28.
