The PsyGeoProvflux is a two day event investigating how the urban landscape of Providence affects its social and artistic community. Sponsored by PIPS, the Provflux is dedicated to further investigations of contemporary psychogeography and experimental forms of public art. We hope to create new collaboration between groups and individuals working with and interpreting the urban fabric of Providence. One part conference, and two part experimentation, the Provflux will include public space reclamations, maps, 24 hour workshops, and lectures in an effort to discover the unseen in the Renaissance city.
Growing from the efforts of Glowlab in NYC and a larger network of psychogeographers worldwide, the Provflux was initiated after PIPS's participation in the first Conflux in NYC. This year the event has grown, including many more artists and projects deciphering the city in a four day event being held at the same time as the Provflux. We hope the energy generated from both shows can lead to further collaboration between artists and thinkers studying the city.
