Geopoetic crossing

Drifting Bodies / Fluent Spaces – Lab2PT & Made of Walking (VII) – Guimaraes (Portugal)

Artists and academics were invited to participate with an audio paper (a performative or walking audio essay) or an audio walk for the walking arts encounters/conference Drifting Bodies – Fluid Spaces / Made of Walking (VII). Below, work submitted as walking audio essay or sound walk.

“Walking, we couldn’t find anything better to go slower,” says philosopher Frederic Gros. Going slower is a current emergency! Slowness engages another look, another listening. The rhythm of walking induces a form of contemplation, meditation, poetry… a rift between what we see, what we know, what we feel and what we perceive ; like a shift in perception, that moment when we no longer know where we are and where something can emerge. This sound piece, written from sounds gleaned while crossing various landscapes, recomposes a landscape that takes the listener away, far from his bearings, and loses him…

This piece can be listened to while walking, or lying down, eyes closed…
