DISPERSE, (verb), to spread out and scatter in random direction. To let go.

Drifting, dawdling, meandering, roving and deviating are all part of this dispersal practice. When a plant spreads it seeds it does so without guarantee of destination, dispersed by wind, water, ballistics, gravity or animal. This practice draws on the practices of dérive and wanderlust and invites you to journey without knowing your destination.

PRACTICE FOR disperse


Take a journey of happenstance:

Follow the wind
Float down courses
Spin in arbitrary direction
Accelerate to that which draws you
Deviate from anticipated routes

Disperse can be practiced by any means and has been designed to accompany a set of community bikes in collaboration with Alec Finlay that will be launched in 2022. Share your practices of meandering with #PHUPLEC #DISPERSE

* PHUPLEC – Pronounced ‘foo-pleck’. PHUPLEC derives from the Proto-Indo-European perfective *bhuH, meaning to become, grow or appear. From this root word comes the English word future, the Latin futūrus (about to be) and esse (to be), the Greek phuō (I grow / become) and phusis (nature), and the Old English bēo (I become, I will be, I am). Phu- is combined with an abbreviated version of the Old English *plecc (pleck or plack) meaning a plot of land, place, spot or patch.
