52 Scores (2019-2020)

Every day I am picking a piece of scrap paper to add to a weekly walking collage. After 7 additions the collage will form a walking score, i.e. instructions for walking. Each score will be finished on Friday, made public Saturday, and walked on Sunday.

Feel free to to try out the score at a distance, or  join me any Sunday in Northampton. If you share the results of your walk with me, I’ll add them to the site.

To see this week’s score as it is developing, check my story on Instagram. E-mail blake@walkexchange.org for more details.

First walked 26 January 2020 by Rosemary and Ritz in Bournville, who ‘stepped out into [their] urban environment for a familiar walk’: ‘Head and nose down we accept our lot, imagining future sunshine
as we race for home.’ Blake and Claudia walked London’s Southbank, considering art’s possibilities for chance encounters, forging strong bonds, and fighting the system.
