Walking Artist

The point is not to simply think, talk, read or write about walking, but rather to go on a walk. Skip the biography and walk straight out the door. Look below for walking exercises and instructions on how to create a memory palace. Better to be out walking.

Former Fresnans

Built with Former Fresnan’s living in London, New York City, San Francisco and Oakland, the resulting Tower District based memory palace blends Fresno past and present. Collaborators are asked to choose two places they consider home in their new city and take me on a walk between them. The resulting memory palace documents the experience of those walks.
I am currently looking for former Fresnans based in the the Midlands of England for one-on-one walks. If you are interested in participating please contact me.

For more information on the project, see my interview with here: The Fresno Bee.

The collection contains work created in collaboration with Courtney Amchislavsky, Kelsey Bergstrom Young, Duane Boutte, Tiffany Chandler, Andrew Guagliardo, Richard Giddens, Kenney Greene, Erin Jacoby Hickman, Kahliah Laney, Alex Lawrence, Phoebe Lehr, Patrick McNaughton, Bryan Miller, Carla Ogden, Chunyendu Oputa, Richard Sanchez, Ashley Semrick DesRochers, Grace Poole, Brett Van Aalsburg, Robert Voris, and Justin Weatherby.
