Walking as art practice

work in progress

Walking as practice is related historically to the lineage designed by Lory Waxman, which implies Surrealism, Situationism and Fluxus[1]. The issue is to build a practice around "an ordinary activity of our everyday life in the city (...) so natural and almost instinctively performed activity in urban environment, that it becomes unnoticed"[2].


I relate this key concept to the themes To make landfall and I (don't) know the spell.
