Psychogeography is the study of the effects of the urban environment on the emotions and behaviour of individuals.  It caught my attention the other day.  For me it blends hobby (haiku) with professional interests (urban design).  

This school of thought relies on the 'derive' - where you walk with the sole objective of letting your interests in the immediate surrounds guide your route and being open to encounters along the way - much like taking an urban ginko.
