This visual essay attempts to provide a recipe for dérive, a form of conceptual navigation on supposedly uncharted grounds. Because of the digital platform and the accompanying hint of community, dérive can gain momentum and pose questions on both personal and collective levels. One feels wildly autonomous yet suspects they are operating within a much larger arena. Ultimately, this field guide serves as a casual reminder that independence and collective culture are necessary to the thriving of any society even during tumultuous times.
