Walking reveals the relationships between places through the routes between them even as it situates the body itself in time and space. Whether walking on, walking with, walking through, walking from and walking to, and walking across, walking is equally a political action, an artistic practice, an embodied act, and a research methodology. The slow sensuous pedestrian traversals of walking allow a renewed attention to narrative, landscape, sociality and environments. We are interested in how the propulsion to connect that is embedded in walking acts as a counter-tension to the mechanisms of bordering.
