Walking piece details

To coincide with WLC2021 we’ll be publishing ‘over borders #2’, and we’d also like to share with participants the first collection of scores, curated by Jez riley French and Pheobe riley Law


This collection began as an idea to share some of our own scores* connected to the concept or effects of borders, which we then expanded to include work by others in our creative communities. Artists / composers were asked to send scores that, in some way, referenced border; social, political, virtual, perceptual, environmental or between species.

Our thanks to all those who responded with their work.

Remote walking – walking with prompts

2021-07-06 18:00


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.
