While there are official institutionally delineated lines, the cultural, geographic and psychological lines that define the boundaries between that which is rural, and that which is urban, are created by those who observe them in the moment. This drift utilizes walking as an analytical mode to explore these geographic dichotomies in relation to the undefined cultural and psychogeographic spaces that divide them. Small groups of walkers will circumnavigate what they perceive to be the border of Olot while mapping their walk. Through the enactment of the work, and the aggregation of outcomes, walking becomes a cartographic instrument for the investigation and mapping of the perceived perimeter between the urban and the rural.

Participants : unlimited number of groups with 2 to 4 participants
Duration: the initial meeting and setting of the prompt will take only 10-15 minutes. The drift itself is guided by the decisions of the participants, so there is not an exact time that can be determined. To fully complete the walk as prompted may take several hours.
Needs: participants will need a way of mapping the walk. This can take any form of “mapping” that participants choose (digital tracking, sketching, audio recording, etc.)
Location: TBD

Walking arts and walking stories

2021-07-15 18:00

Online

In East and West, for centuries, painters, poets, dancers were walking in the landscape (natural and urban) and finding sources of reference or inspiration. Walking stories are carried in memory and remain existing for as long as there is a body to carry them. Walking is not characterized by one solid approach; it can be drifting, wandering, strolling, aimless, or purposeful. Each one of these practices suggests a body that remembers and they are introducing different approaches of storytelling.

Remote walking – walking with prompts

2021-07-06 18:00

Online

The pandemic challenged walking artists to engage with new forms and new media for their practice. Group walking was translated into online walking, allowing people around the globe to walk together. Prompts or "walking scores" facilitated pandemic walkers to explore within the limits of their walking spaces, often in surprising and new ways, individually or with other remote walkers. Online technologies permitted to listen into remote spaces, beyond physical reach in the pandemic.

Hoe ervaar je een ruimte, als je je ogen sluit? We gaan op zoek naar de klank van de kasteeltoren, we stemmen ons af op de ruimte, hoe wij in trilling komen, als vleermuizen de ruimte peilend, de toren als klankkast.
