Dear Conflux friends,
As you may know, for this year’s Conflux we were planning to do something a little different, inviting friends and like-minded practitioners to participate in a walking exploration in a surprise location. However, some unforeseen events have made it impossible for us to produce Conflux in the way we planned, so unfortunately it won’t be happening this year.
As luck would have it, we were invited by a few longtime Conflux enthusiasts to help promote several great psychogeography-related projects that are going on at the exact same time. This made the very difficult decision to take a break from Conflux much easier, allowing us to channel our creative efforts into these other events, and into building our community further. We hope you’ll check them out, and we remain optimistic that Conflux will return in 2014. If you’re interested in helping with planning for next year, please let us know!
Here are three great projects taking place the weekend of October 19–20:
Wanderlust Projects presents:
The 29th Annual Timothy Convention

New York Hall of Science
Empire Drive-In, designed by New York artists Todd Chandler and Jeff Stark, is a large-scale temporary installation built from junked cars and salvaged materials. The project invites audiences to participate in a series of questions about car culture, planned obsolescence, and the distinction between public and private space. You can also watch a movie on a really big screen.
