Experiments with the edges of walking

    16TH TO 31ST JULY 2020

    You are invited to choose a walk from the Directory

    Walks can be undertaken wherever you are and can be indoors or outdoors.

    Make a random choice * or choose whichever one speaks to you.

    Interpret how you wish.

    If you send a photo, drawing or up to 10 words that surface from the experience of walking I will respond with another walk and send you an image or words in return. This may or may not prompt another walk, ad infinitum.

    *To make a random choice from the Directory of Walks – walk from your bed to your kitchen sink and count each step. If you reach 10 start again from 1.

    Send your image or words to edges@sallystenton.com

    However you walk, whether alone, or with others, via digital mediation please pay careful attention when crossing paths or edges.

    On Thursday 23rd July at 2pm I will be walking in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire. Join me from a distance, whether it is 1 metre or 1,000 miles (or more). Email me or scroll along for more details.

    Situationist RCA is a physical, pan-continental, temporary, see-it-in-the-flesh, blink-and-you’ll miss-it network of events, happenings and installations that will run during the course of RCA 2020.
