When the pandemic began, I began finding it difficult to finish books. I would start reading something and then get distracted and put it aside. I just didn’t have the concentration to read anything longer than an article in The Guardian or The New Yorker. It was surprising, and worrying, and I suddenly found myself wondering if […]
Today's featured walking piece
This 2016 walk was composed by Andrew Brown in collaboration with Lise Olsen, Demi Hill and Emily Stollery, as part of the Spaces of Uncertainty Summer Academy that took place at the Württembergische Kunstverein in Stuttgart. It was inspired by the activism around the Stuttgart21 project, which turned the city into a vast construction site. Whilst the walk is located…

Following an arbitrary line is a tried and tested technique for the curious walker. The landscape and its contents will reveal themselves in a sequence determined by your line. Pick a start, an end and draw line between them. Follow that line and keep you eyes and ears open. Kate Green spent the last year […]

In May I should have been walking with co-artist Lorna Brunstein developing a programme of work for installation at the Lake District Holocaust Project. Sara's Last Steps would have taken place during a weekend of events commemorating the arrival of a group of Jewish child refugees to a location near Windermere in 1945. The weekend included a planned reunion of those still living and able to travel plus their families and descendants. Sadly the virus has put paid to that and the proj [...]

Everyone currently involved in Walkspace lives in the Birmingham suburb of Stirchley and the lockdown has made us keenly aware of our immediate surroundings. Walking the same routes again and again means we're noticing things for the first time and figuring out new routes to perambulate along. So we've started mapping things-of-note.

It’s a breezy, cool, sunny day and I’m walking towards 13th Avenue. i notice a miniature Adirondack chair at the foot of an elm tree next to the sidewalk, and I’m reminded of the tiny chairs at the beginning of The Friendly Giant. Down the street, a lawn is entirely occupied by large rhubarb plants; […]
Weird Walk is a zine in the true sense of the word. Sure, it's an A5 publication of 40-odd pages that you get in the post, but it's also a collection words and pictures about a thing that the authors are obsessed with and which they need to put in a package to send into […]

Il revisite ainsi de nombreux espaces inouïs, des jardins sonores à parcourir, des formes de musées auriculaires vivants, à … Continuer à lire ... "Un paysagiste sonore"
It’s a cool Sunday afternoon. I smell woodsmoke as I begin my walk. A family riding their bicycles on the sidewalk forces me into the street. I stop to admire tulips in bloom beside a mailbox. The same gardener has placed red flowers in an old, broken wheelbarrow. I wonder if they are impatiens—Christine has […]
