‘walk with me’ was an interactive work set in different cities. It consists of one to one walks that start at a small convenience store or kiosk and lead to an iconic building or a landscape that defines the city. Currently, equidistant routes (60 min walking in Johnson paces) in Beijing, Cologne, Shanghai, Xiamen, Taidong (Taiwan) and Berlin have been established.

As Solnit writes, ‘walking for pleasure between two points returns the space between into a garden, a ‘public garden without walls’ (Wanderlust. 2002: 167).

‘walk with me’ invites local inhabitants and visitors to participate in a one to one walk with the artist. Though the route is pre-determined, each companion defines it afresh in his or her response to instigating prompts handed out at intervals.

Each walk is divided into 15 passages and each passage has a specific question or task assigned to it. The intervals between passages are intervals of thinking, of standing still, of putting ephemeral moments into words. These ‘human writings’ are gathered together in an archive ‘Composition of the Ordinary’.
