In 1960 the Suriname-born artist Stanley Brouwn asked people on the street to show on a piece of paper how they would walk from point A to point B. For Brouwn walking was a way of becoming one with yourself, merging with your environment. The series are a documentation of borders and walks in different metropolis around the world.

The project was developed using ideas of the New Babylon project of COBRA artist Constant and Situationists theories from Jaqueline de Jong and Guy Debord. Debord not only recognized the tectonic shift from a society centered on commodity to one centered on image, but also developed a keen sense for its neuralgic points, such as its intolerance for the passage of time.
