walking the boundary lines waiting for someone to walk with walking the boundary lines

“I noticed rain and traffic and bells so I looked at the bell tower and then I noticed a building I hadn’t seen before, so what is the point?”

There is power in the methodical ritual of walking, in these instances, walking silently in the presence of those experiencing your work. Here there is the presence of the artist in the sounds filling the user’s head, and the silent presence of the artist walking with the viewer. I wonder who is getting more from this exchange.

Soundwalks continue:
Friday 24th Aug 2012 at 5pm
Saturday 25th Aug 2012 at 4pm

There will also be unscheduled soundwalks available during the day on Saturday .
