Introduction: Changing Realities
International Sokołowsko Festival of Ephemeral Art, Sokołowsko, Poland - July 23, 2017
This essay deals with my own experience of walking as art. ‘My Walking Life’, as I term this, in a sense began in 2011. In that year I undertook a series of walks in my then home city of Dundee, Scotland. Since that time I have been involved or authored a number of walking projects, as artworks. For the purpose of this piece I will however, stick with this first walk/work, which was entitled ‘Boundary’.
‘…the art work is not a repository of meaning but a site for meaning-making’ (Addison, 1999, p.36)
