Description :
This article analyses recreational trespass through urban exploration and infiltration in London. It explains that urban explorers are one of many groups reacting to increased surveillance and control over urban space, playfully probing boundaries and weaknesses in urban security in a search for bizarre, beautiful and unregulated areas where they can build personal relationships to places. The results both complement and complicate recent work within geography around issues of surveillance, subversion, urban community building and critical engagement with cities.
