Paving The Way

CC-BY-NC: Helen Leigh

Walking with women in Edinburgh Scotland, I recorded conversations and sounds of the path, seeking to capture the space that we moved through, together. Through sharing perceptions and reflections of lived experiences as women who walk, the audio tapestry uses the words, ideas and sounds of the participants combined with the sounds of the path, to explore a means of disrupting male dominating history that has come before, presenting a path for towards a different future.
