Walk With Us - Six Lessons in Walking a Tightrope - location 1

‘Walk With Us’ offers two self-guided walks along the sea fronts of Penzance and Dawlish.

Combining poetic audio with augmented reality (AR) visuals, the free app launched in July 2022 for iOS and Android and will be available for 2 years. It was created by Sarah Hymas, Alex Peckham and Maya Chowdhry.

Exploring themes of coastal erosion and climate change, Walk With Us is for everybody interested in the sea, what lives in it, and how it affects us.

In Penzance, ‘Six Lessons in Walking a Tightrope’ leads you from Newlyn Art Gallery to the Jubilee Pool. Using audio, AR, weather and ocean data, it balances the line between celebrating our world as it is now and foreseeing changes.

‘Dive’ in Dawlish takes you from the railway station along the seawall to Coryton Cove, on a magical underwater walk. Blending real life with science fiction visuals, you descend into the ocean while never actually getting your feet wet.

Six Lessons in Tightrope Walking begins at the Newlyn Art Gallery in Penzance, Cornwall, whilst Dive begins at the under colonnade viaduct in Dawlish, Devon.
