*** Film and words from the ZOOM Launch Event ***
Walking Bodies: Scores and Exchanges ~ Wednesday 23rd June 2021
We heard four talks from:
Ishita Jain: ‘Writing the Walking’
Morag Rose: ‘And, and, and.... Towards a Criptasticly Expanded Walk’
Blake Morris: ‘Walking and the Art of Invitation’
Jody Oberfelder: ‘Life Traveler’
You can watch/hear the last three on the clip below and access the text of Ishita's talk here.
We also heard a short talk from Helen Billinghurst, which you can read here.
As a pre-event activity, we invited everyone planning to attend to engage with up to seven playful walking scores. Composed by Claire, Phil and Helen, these were a chance for everyone to experience walking activities before the evening itself and a prompt to reflect on individual and collective practices and experiences of walking arts.
(View and download the 7 scores as a pdf)
or view the scores online:
Score 1 ~ Score 2 ~ Score 3
Score 4 ~ Score 5 ~ Score 6 ~ Score 7
Participants contributed their responses to these scores, which autopoietically formed themselves into a text read by Claire Hind in the clip below:
