Have you ever been to the woods?
Now, I can imagine, you’re smiling gently, but not without a hint of sarcasm.
“Of course” you say to yourself. “What kind of question is that?!”
But have you really? Have you been to a real forest? The one that makes you pay the price for entering it?
Walking is never innocent. It shapes the landscape as we go. It indulges the gaze.
Walking is political. It creates realities, depending on where we go, with whom, when, on the weather, clothes, thoughts, feelings, health conditions, terrains, shapes, plants, types of the ground, moisture of the soil and any other element that you can think of.
I lost myself in the woods. Come walk through me!
Participation in the walk was free, but reservations were required at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Necessary equipment: smartphone or mp3 player and headphones.
We send a link to an audio file, which was downloaded to smartphone or mp3 player and which was used during the walk.
The walk was in English.
