How unusual it is nowadays to wander around in a city, to let oneself be taken by an experience and to truly observe within one's urban reality. WALK is an experiment in a sensory guided tour throughout the topography of the city. It is an invitation for a sensitive, intimate experience within the busiest, loudest context.
The participants will gather in a specific point, where they will be guided through a short preparation for the tour, and from there, they would leave two by two for an alternative tour, triggering observation and play between the streets, the different happenings around and the participants. Through a simple and automatic action such as walking, WALK wants to touch one's habits through one's barest foundation: the legs, and by exploring their function to learn something about the relation between the individual and his/her relation to the environment around him/her.
The project is realized in collaboration with a group of diverse individuals, who are curious to be the guides for the tour.
Everyone is invited to take part!
