Instructions

If you want to walk, try walking on your “Main Street”. Walk toward an art gallery. Go into every room and look around. If you don’t find an art gallery, make one. Continue to move in and out of air-conditioned places. For those of you in the southern hemisphere, central heating will work too. If there’s a freeway anywhere around, make sure you cross it. If there is no freeway, look for railroad tracks.

Drifting to Third Ward by Karen O’Rourke

After the 20 minutes sound walk, following the instructions above, a walking conversation will start between Karen O’Rourke, Yannis Ziogas and Geert Vermeire, where you can listen in through Zoom.
