When reading Careri's aim to debunk the notion of an anti-architectural image of nomadism, I am led to think about the itinerant world of the gypsy, whose motions, I feel, constitute a "space of going". Through their ability to "dream dwellings" (Daniel Willis), they are able to make anywhere home. It seems that in order to do this their wanderings would have to have what DeBord calls a psychogeographic awareness, as well as aesthetic act. What's interesting to me is that their walking seems to have both an element of survival, as well as symbolic form. That being said, I do however think there is a fine line between walking as art and one in virtue of your milieu.
