Walking Still

Walking Still

(on going project)

70 miles of walking, livestream video footage and stills, GPS tracks, laser cut drawings, embossed paper, cell phone, various hiking gear

In October 2012 I performed a series of walks totaling 71 miles over 2 weeks. The series culminated in a 21.4 mile walk from the Ragdale Foundation in Lake Forest, IL to my home in Chicago. During the walks, I streamed live video and GPS of my walks to the internet using my phone. Viewers participated by watching the video and sending comments via Ustream, Kickstarter and Facebook. I burned the GPS tracks into wood using a laser cutter and am in the process of embossing these tracks onto paper. I sifted through the hours of video footage to select pixelated stills to print as archival photographs.
