[score base: A card featuring part of Gwen MacGregor and Sandra Rechico’s Rejoinders (2012); photo and score: Kaitlyn Van Aalsburg (2021); score text: landscape through walking and imagining together./concerned literally with experiences not with theories/experience/the area increasing/prompted, in part, by the ‘scale’ – the duration/not walking merits mention/what was formerly “exterior”]
Please join Kaitlyn and me as we walk Score #1 for my project 52 More. Kaitlyn and I have interpreted the score as a series of four (‘prompted, in part, by the scale - the duration’) and we will be doing the walk in the same landscape over the four seasons. We would love to share the experience of walking and imagining the landscape with you as it changes over the year.
You can do the walk anywhere, at any time. Read the score above and decide how you interpret it as instructions for a walk. Share it with me via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through social media using #52More.
Spring Walk: Anytime before 20 June 2021
Summer Walk: TBD (20 June - 21 September 2021)
Autumn Walk: TBD (22 September - 20 December 2021)
Winter Walk: TBD (21 December - 20 March 2022)
Katy and Blake; 25 May 2021; Hawley, Pennsylvania.
We begin with not walking. A conflict between the interior and the exterior takes precedent. An urgent appointment. It merits mention.
The next morning we walk a small perimeter around the house. We stop often, looking closely.
The exterior, framed through the infrastructure of the interior.

Mathilda; 1 June 2021; Greifswald, Germany.
Mathilda took the score out to ‘her favourite path’, one to which she ‘will gladly return at all seasons’. Wiedererkennungseffekt: a revisiting of ‘spots and places which [she] made [her] own during 52 scores and the sunrise walks’. A kind of ‘reminiscing rather than imagining’. To be revisited in all seasons.
