WALK. An intervention into public space in the area of Spitalfields, East London, November 2004. Frames have been placed across this neighborhood, pointing out local histories, facts and personal associations. A line painted onto the pavement connects the individual frames, creating a continuous path of roughly 1.8 km. In addition, Public Voice Boxes have been attached to specific street corners, allowing the public to express and share thoughts either related to the walk or any other local issues. 2010: on display at This is not a Gateway festival 2010 @Hanbury Community Hall, Hanbury Street, East London. -- published in: Grafik, Journal of the Best in International Graphic Design, Issue 126, Feb. 2005 The Art of Rebellion 2, Christian Hundertmark (c100), Ginko Press, 2006 4 Minutes to Midnight, issue 7, 20three//fifty6 press, 2005 Street Talk, Malcolom Frost, Angharad Lewis, Aidan Winterburn, images publishing group, 2006 -- awards: Memefest 2005, International Festival of Radical Communication, Category Beyond, 4th place Read Less

“Nothing is experienced by itself,
 but always in relation to its surroundings,
the sequence of events building up to it,
the memory of past experiences. ...
The image of a city is never stable,
it always changes.”




WALK is a rhizomelike approach of connecting and recombing the contemporary,
urban landscapewith its history. Frames have been placed across this neighborhood,
pointing out local histories,facts and personal associations. A line painted onto the pavement
connects the individual frames,creating a continuous path of roughly 2 km.

In addition, Public Voice Boxes have been attached tospecific street corners, allowing the public
to express and share thoughts either related to the walkor any other local issues.

WALK has been published, quoted and related to due to its multidisciplinary concerns.
Over time WALK faded away into the city jungle again, just how it was meant to.
It stays an urban legend for the people who know until today.
