  • DSCVR, Reiseführer des Zufalls – Travel Guide to Serendipity

  • Independent travelling is being strechted to its limits: in search of uniqueness and authenticity, tourists find it increasingly difficult to discover places at ease and without previous expectations. How can the scope for surprises, finding the unknown and maximizing leisure be extended?

    Following the idea of experimental travel and based on explorative and auto-ethnographical research methods, I developed DSCVR, a Travel Guide to Serendipity: Instead of navigating through the city it is a guide to getting lost. It raises questions, instigates cultural and social interaction, and encourages reflection on past situations. Playful impulses in the guide aim at expanding the traveller's horizon for unusual experiences and inspire the discovery of certain uncertainites – from Honolulu to your hometown.
