Walking piece details

This is a walk I made while in Skudeneshavn, Norway, on New Year’s Day 2021 through a large forest that stretches into the centre of the island of Karmoy. It has text, photos, drawings made in the woods, and bits of film. The film is on Vimeo, and the text and images are on my website.

It is part of the Walking the Land project. We were invited to use prompt words from the Scottish artist and poet Thomas A Clark, whose work and life have been inspired by walking. His prose poem ‘In Praise of Walking’ evokes his love of walking in the landscape.
