For Erick de Lyon, the memory of a walking trip to Rome together with a friend was the source of inspiration for this spatial manuscript.

‘…the road continues
you have to search for streets, roads lead to a destination
a step diagonally forwards is also forwards
the south is the unknown friend
there where the sun is at twelve o’clock
and in the evening draw the line on the map
in turns
we walk from one map into the other…’
