Sauntering is a way to get to know the city by moving through it randomly. You don't know where you're going and what is waiting for you around the corner. Spontaneity makes a researcher a part of the city: a person and a place communicate in a way that is Impossible to achieve by passive sightseeing or following a specifically designed tourist route. I used to employ this method for understanding new cities: I selected a starting point and went walking about for several hours, so this time I decided to try and take a fresh look at the city I live in. To start off, I needed to choose a context, a prism for observation.
Morning is a special time, when everything – from the light outside to communication between people, looks and happens differently – unusually, mysteriously, strangely. Morning is valued in many cultures and is considered the most important time of day: it is in the morning when the foundations for the upcoming day are laid. I have repeatedly experienced first-hand how one day can be different from another depending on when we wake up and what we do in the morning. So I had a wish to show the city in this state of renewal, to see it wake up and live.
