Magda Lipka Falck’s project, for the 2010 degree exhibition of Stockholm’s art and design school Konstfack, examines the idea of travel books. Titled “Anywhere—A Travel Guide” Falck allows for journeys of all sorts: across the globe, around the block, or within ourselves.
Free of acknowledging any specific place she has “created a travel guide that is situated somewhere in the middle.” Featuring a range of inspiring journey accounts—from diverse travelers to photographs of places, people and experiences—there’s plenty of stimuli to get you up and about.
Yet perhaps the pages of travel tips, the real flesh of this unusual travel guide, which sets it in context. Applicable for all types of travel, Falck doles out creative advice like “Imagine a song you haven’t heard in a long time. Move your body with the music. Turn right when the song ends.” Or, “Ask a stranger which is their favorite street. Go there.”
Her concept for the Anywhere-A Travel Guide allows the traveler to revisit daily places or see them from a new perspective, or search for places not yet discovered. What a great perspective! Any day and everyday can be a journey.
