Places of the Heart

Another book that I've just caught up with is by Colin Ellard. Following links to his website and other connected articles and reviews threatens to take me down a whole new rabbit hole of ideas.

It explores our links with places, with its subtitle 'The psychogeography of everyday life'.

He has written a couple of other interesting sounding books. His research is about how we explore places and interact with them on an emotional level. It sounds similar to the work that Dan Raven Ellison did with CISCO when he wore a headset and walked across all the UK's cities and all the UK's National Parks.

The introduction to the book sets out the main area that the book explores.

Of course the first thing one does then is follow Colin on Twitter, and look at what he has retweeted and liked to find related accounts of interest and new things....
