A Walking Drawing is a large-scale drawing undertaken with a combination of freehand and mechanical tools on a vast landscape (canvas) of at least a quarter of a mile in the early hours of the morning. People of different ages, genders and cultures all dressed in black are then led onto the drawing and invited to walk its lines in various formats and patterns. The entire process is filmed and photographed.
"... I wanted to take my studio practice into a public space and onto a larger canvas and so Walking Drawings was born. It also meant I could connect and work more interactively with people. Walking Drawings experiments with a new way of drawing, swapping traditional media such as paint, charcoal and paper with landscapes, digital video pixels and people.”
“... exciting concept of visual art in landscape – different from Goldsworthy because it has people in landscape but still captures the temporal nature of things."
