The unusual guide to Porto is a guide of Oporto city, lined by the change of use of the standard tourist guide, as a contribution to an unusual guide.
Approaching the concept of unusual in the fields of suggestion and action, in which drawing appears as a substitute of fotography, different angle views are suggested as a demand for changing the spectator behavior. This guide shows the most watched Porto, in the least seen way.
Thus, the implication areas which contribute for the unusual are: the time of the drawing, the perception (defined by Merleau-Ponty). The emancipated spectator, so-called by Jacques Rancière, (as the one who observes and interferes). The deviation from the norm, (studied by the Group µ). And that the changes caused by drawing as a substitute of photography.
The areas of the intervention were mapped through the diagrams and the consequent application of drawing strategies.
All the Oporto city drawing views were made in travel sketchbooks, along routes through the city. The same routes were used in the Unusual Guide and explained with maps.
As a result, the Unusual Guide of Porto.
This guide is available to sell to a book publisher.
