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.

Upcoming Walks and Events

As part of the Performing Archive Symposium with the Museum and University Partnerships Initiative I will be leading a walk through Letchworth, the original garden city. The walk will focus on the Spirella Factory, the design of which foreshadows many of the tech campuses that dot the contemporary working landscape.
A Wander is not a Slog takes Clare Qualmann and Claire Hind’s Ways to Wander (2015) as a guidebook for a year of walking. In a moment dominated by the gravity of its surreality, I will spend the year engaging with walks that ‘sit somewhere on a scale between dream and reality.’ 

I will be doing one walk per week; if you would like to join me for any of my explorations, either in London or through a distance exchange, please reach out.
