52 More

On 13th November, I walked in Edinburgh ‘with’ Blake Morris in New York.

He sent me an envelope with text and image and I responded with this idea: tear-off strips for people to use when they walk, ways to see the landscape and surroundings from a new angle, perhaps. We were finding places to leave these prompts and, along the way, chatted to the interested and the not-so-enamoured about the idea! I’ll go back next week and see if any have been torn, and we will monitor our social media for #52MORE.

And in early December, I walked another of the #52MORE scores in Paris, this time it was Mathilda’s. Score 17 in Paris with Mathilda @thetravelingtype_ and Blake Morris @formerfresnan #52MORE

Walk This Weekend was a community walking event organised in response to the worldwide lockdown as a result of covid-19. Many people from different countries took a short solo walk around their immediate neighbourhood for the purposes of exercise. While they were out, they recorded sound and took photos to share with those who were self-isolating or for some other reason could not leave their houses. The task was to create a video/audio for them so they could be outside while they were inside. Here it is on YouTube
