Walk 5.

A walk suggested by someone you love. This walk was given to me by my partner, Neil. One  Walk along the street and try to find any instance where you can fill your field of vision only with a natural thing (rock, plant, mountain, etc.) consider if the natural form exists in its place naturally …

Anti-Business Cards.

Over 60,000 United States manufacturing plants have shut their doors since 2000, causing roughly 5 million Americans to lose their jobs. One of these factories was American Standard’s Tiffin, Ohio, plant (in operation from 1899-2007). By placing the name of former American Standard employees on the products they once made (porcelain toilets and sinks), I …

Explore your space/place for two hours, looking, gathering, recording and archiving data that celebrates or magnifies the scale of the social scene of your choosing.

My once-white dress, stained with earth from my childhood home, serves as a reminder that I cannot cleanse myself …

In Goldsworthy’s work, time is always (although sometimes understated) present as a subject.

Walk 2.

desire line n. A path that pedestrians or vehicles take informally rather than taking a sidewalk or set route, for example, a well-worn ribbon of dirt cutting across a patch of grass, or a path in the snow. As I was walking this week, the one thing I consistently noticed was all of the jaywalking lizards. It struck me as interesting that my brain called their natural movement through this urban landscape jaywalking - an undoubtedly …

Walk 1.

The same walk. Three different mornings. Three different senses. My house to the library: sound As I neared the street (head down as to not be disrupted by the alien foliage) I was nearing the ocean. The hum of engines transformed into the roar of waves lapping up against the shore. The noise grew louder, …
