Walk 51

Blairmore to Frank, Crowsnest Pass, AlbertaFollowing the trail that follows the Crowsnest River from town to town across the pass, I walked to Frank and back from the Gushul Residency in Blairmore. A windy day in the mountains, but it felt so good to be out on the trail putting one foot in front of the other again! I've been impeded by a foot injury for many weeks, but talks of walks with friends today - from the daily commute on foot to the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela - persuaded me to [...]

111. Vanessa Watts, “Indigenous Place-Thought & Agency Amongst Humans and Non-Humans (First Woman and Sky Woman Go On a European World Tour!)”

I came across a reference to this article in Stephanie Springgay’s and Sarah E. Truman’s Walking Methodologies in a More-Than-Human World: WalkingLab, one of many texts they refer to that have resonance for my own work.

109. Stephanie Springgay and Sarah E. Truman, Walking Methodologies in a More-than-Human World: WalkingLab

Published as part of a series on research methods in the social sciences, Walking Methodologies in a More-than-Human World: WalkingLab still has something to offer for those of us who walk as an artistic practice. However, it’s not an easy read, particularly if, like me, you’ve never read A Thousand Plateaux, know little about assemblage […]

Prehistory: Why is it so entrancing?

Circles without Class Ceilings Why can prehistory be so entrancing? Why do some people find prehistory so entrancing? Why do they become so spellbound When walking by, let’s say, a long barrow? How do they become so transported in time and space? ...

Prehistory and Wormholes of Time

As the traffic rumbles past on Cotswold roads, It’s hard to hear the chip of stone on flint, Or the croak of corvids with their blood-drip beaks, Or the breaking of the bones of a skeleton, Or smell the rotting flesh on the capstone, Or taste the ...
