This project looks at walking and collecting, exploring randomness and order.  collecting small items that would fit into a small compartmentalised box while walking.  A second layer is as a written documentary layer noting the location and experience.  The walker becoming the storyteller.  These walks boxes are intended as a conduit to meaning.  A means of viewing the location of the walk its history, its people, its geology and any  story generated through its process.

Expanding the geography of the walks:  I initially began walking close to home and gradually expanded the geography.

Inviting other artists to walk and document. Developing a psychogeographical layer:

Wanting to physically distance myself. I invited my fellow artists on the MA to collaborate.  Geographically expanding the project. I asked them to go through the same process, walking, collecting, ordering, documenting.

I sent boxes to some artists and they placed their items themselves.  Others sent the items and I placed them.

In an attempt to emotionally connect I challenged myself to summarise their experience alongside my interpretation into a single word

Stillness and meditation was added to my own process in the further walks I made in this collection.  It is an ongoing expanding work which I hope to exhibit in the not too distant future.
