Paths of Desire: Itineraries as Transgression.

Paths of desire: A term appearing in studies of landscape design as well as
architecture, which refers to the paths we trace when our desires lead us
off the beaten track and a trail forms behind us. This notion both
encompasses the incidental and manifests longing, and brings to light the
importance of both the traverser and the traversal. These figures are key
to the shaping of physical and theoretical topographies. No itinerary is
undertaken without motivation, or without leaving a mark.
