First there was generative psychogeography(*), walking on algorithms, translating ideas from computer science to the real world. The next logical challenge was to start utilising the latent power of these algorithms in a scheme much more complex: the construction of a UPC (Universal Psychogeographical Computer).

This peripatetic computer is platform independent & can put any street-pattern to work as a switchboard or an abacus. The UPC is operated unconsciously by interacting swarms of psychogeographical agents.

In theory the UPC is able to do anything a normal computer does, artificial intelligence included.
