Terminalia Festival of Psychogeography 

Exploring Boundaries and Monuments.     

A walk from Vauxhall Bus station on Thursday February 23rd

I was researching the Mythic Method and the essence of Modernity, which as I understand it does not mean returning to the past but giving an understanding to the present, when I was contacted about the Terminalia Festival. 

Through this walk and it’s connections with Terminus the Roman God who ruled over boundaries I hope to explore these ideas further.

“ Instead of narrative method, we may now use the mythic method. It is, I seriously believe, a step toward making the modern world possible for art.”
T.S. Eliot, from Ulysses, Order, and Myth (1923)

The mythic method  is  also connected to Eliot’s idea for allowing the audience to participate and workout the meaning of an artist’s work.

There is a wonderful exhibition on at Pallant House in Chichester exploring the Mythic Method :http://pallant.org.uk/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/main-galleries/the-mythic-method-classicism-in-british-art/the-mythic-method-classicism-in-british-art
