Abstract

This essay contemplates a game we used to play as children, as a framework for reconnecting with urban space and enhancing the way we experience it as adults. In this game, walking became a productive process, a means of experiencing urban space that rendered it meaningful through the stories and memories it generated. Remembering these urban stories and sensory experiences, and reflecting on the distance between us and our urban social environment—which can never be captured by a map on our screens—we now wonder if getting lost in the city we live in is a way to reconnect with it.
