Fluid Walkscapes – Corporeal Imaginaries
Fluid Walkscapes – Corporeal Imaginaries is an invitation to a narrated sensorial walking experience and a world of imaginary realities, physical objects and bodily mappings. What does walking as an aesthetic practice mean? This project sets out to touch, question, unpack and immerse itself in the multiple experiences that walking offers. Shaped by our fluid sensorial encounters with other bodies and things, it examines our embodiment in the city, and that of the city within us. In current pandemic conditions, walking is often perceived as a response to our oversaturated virtual existence. Fluid Walkscapes seeks to decipher walking as a timeless and transformative practice.
Consisting of a soundwalk, a sculptural installation and a complementary publication, this project stems from Walking Club Rietveld’s What We Walk About When We Talk About Walking: a collective study on walking in the framework of Studium Generale Rietveld 2021.
