I am looking for contributors for an artwork based on hundreds of ‘described walks’.
I am looking for people to record themselves describing their walk. Audio only.
More detailed information on how to submit here:
• Go on a walk
• As you walk record audio describing the walk
• Use the audio recording app on your smart phone
• Use your headset for best results, or record phone normally as if making a telephone call.
• Email me the audio file at email@example.com
During this stage I will be posting submitted walks on twitter here: https://twitter.com/procrastanita and my blog here:
The work was inspired by COVID lockdowns last year and how most of us were confined to have a limited amount of time and radius from home to go for a walk. This was the case in most of Australia.
Walking became something different then - it became almost meditative, a time to focus on the physicality of what was around us. Places we whizz through or take for granted were being re-explored. We were witnessing daily, weekly the changes around us.
During this recent lockdown in Melbourne, Australia, I decided to reach out and re-awaken the Lockdown Walk. I am now accepting anyone who wishes to contribute worldwide.
I will transcribe these walks into text and be used in a final AI project after I have received descriptive walks from the public.
