Instructions on how to walk with this exposition
This exposition is meant to be both serious and playful. It is made up of a written script, three audiotracks and three illustrations. You can examine all of them, or only some. They are iterations, different and yet the same. The idea behind such diversity of material is to propose that form is not insignificant or trivial. If you want to engage with only one thing, my proposal is that you listen to Track two.
If you decide to listen to some or all of the audiotracks, I recommend you go walk outside while listening to them. You can try to walk and breathe in the same rhythm. The order of the tracks does not matter.
The first track, Walking Postscript, was recorded on May 4th, 2020. It is a response to five peer reviews, and it explains some of the issues that I had not been clear about previously. I recorded the track between 9am and 3pm, while walking, or rather stumbling, in a forest in South Finland. It contains a speech, and after that 10 minutes of walking sounds. It is not essential material, but if you like to hear my thoughts on artistic research, you can find them here. This track is also an instance of walking autoethnography, in which the practice of walking, reading and writing are intertwined.
