A time made by walking

A time made by walking (2012)

stereo sound work, for a walk of 1000 paces, 16 mins

 

This is yet another attempt to realise an abstract – the timescale of the development of Homo sapiens. It is also a concretisation of the distance metaphors we use for time.

The work unfolds a linear history of our past 250,000 years in sound. It is intended to be listened to while walking 1000 paces at a steady rate in an open space where one can clearly see the whole route covered.
