Geurts refers to this process ‘psycho-topographical mapping’ – a practice associated with psychogeography and its exploration of space, particularly urban spaces – and explains that it is only one part of a working process that responds to specific geographic sites and their water systems. Frequently he develops work across a number of media in response to a single site in what he refers to as ‘expanded drawing practice’. He gains a sense of each place through extended periods of fieldwork, taking note of what the site reveals, hides and suggests over time.
