Golf On The Moon with David Bowie Tim Wright's Urban Golf Odyssey
Digital writer and artist Tim Wright along with self styled gonzogeographer Gordon Joly were cheered on from Pudding Mill DLR station as Wright played 'Golf On The Moon' finally holing out to the sound of a brass band on Arnold Circus.
The piece forms part of Wright's bigger project 'Golf On The Moon (with David Bowie)' which sees him planning for the day when he will actually go to the moon with Bowie and play golf. Wright implores: 'Don't leave space to the professionals!"
The route of play was Gonzo Trail Number One and this public art exploration of London edging the London Olympic site is seen by many as the antidote to and the heralding of a new pychogeography, a splacist revolution that consigns psychogeography as a 21st century term to the trashcan.
This is just the latest of Tim Wright's experiments in new urban and rural exploration with his Kidmapper project of last year seeing him cross Scotland using directions from the famous Robert Louis Stevenson adventure story Kidnapped as his guide, using social networking sites to give daily and sometimes more frequent updates of his progress while encouraging folks to read the book as they followed his progress.
Watch out for and maybe join in further gonzo splacist explorations as Wright and Joly along with others in the new splacist movement extend their operations.
Gonzo Trail Number One provides the perfect Earth practice Golf On The Moon faiways, rough and green as Commander Tim Wright prepares for the time when he will leave Earth and fulfil his dream of playing golf on the moon with David Bowie.
