Table of walks is  project initiated by the Milena principle (B). Within this pilot year there was as well a Summer School of Walking in Delphi (GR) in the format of a forum with a series of walks and walking workshops,  focussing on dialogues between performance, arts, literature and new media, inviting artists, writers, walkers, performers, musicians and composers, sound designers, new media artist, developers, teachers, researchers, experts and scientists of different fields, to share their experiences and to explore together topics related to walking practices. The event was attended by 100 participants with 25 walking artists and experts from the US, Australia, Singapore, South Africa, Egypt,  Israel, India/France/UK, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Turkey, Cyprus and Greece.

The forum in La Romieu is co-curated by Isabelle Clermont, Gilles Malatray (Desartssonnants, Lyon) and Geert Vermeire (coordinator the Milena principle / Urban Emptiness Network) in dialogue with Robin Decourcy (TrekDance) and Andrew Stuck (Museum of Walking / Walking Artist Network UK). The forum is hosted by the artistic organisation Le Bouc qui Zouke the municipality of La Romieu. It intends to stimulate a meeting between researchers and artists related to walking. CRESSON Grenoble is approached as an academical partner.

 

Proposed theme: 'Sometimes we walk on the ground, sometimes on sidewalks or asphalt, or other surfaces. Can we find ground to walk on and can we listen for the sound or sounds of ground? Are we losing ground? Can we find new ground by listening for it?' Pauline Oliveros, October 22, 2016.

 

Open Call Made of Walking La Romieu 2017:

 

Sound Walk Sunday - open call for contributions.

Sunday 27 August is the inaugural Sound Walk Sunday, worldwide inaugurated from Made of Walking in La Romieu in collaboration with Andrew Stuck - the Museum of Walking, and we want to hear from you of suggestions for audio, geo-located, immersive performance or sound walks as we want to build up a directory and map in time for Sound Walk Sunday. Read more below and suggest a walking piece and find out how you can contribute.

We are researching artists, performers and producers who have created audio walking pieces of their own. Even if it is past and all that's left is an archived piece - we are hoping too that there may be current work that could be tried out by the public on Sound Walk Sunday.

 

We have set up a simple form into which various details can be included and it would be great if you could contribute to this - you will find it here: http://www.museumofwalking.org.uk/events/sound-walk-sunday/

Is there budget, time or effort capacity within your networks that we could tap into in the weeks coming up to the 27 August? Could we be invited on to a show to talk about / or write copy for a blog / column describing what we are trying to achieve? Contact us here. We are drawing on volunteer support at the present time. In due course we would like to have a mechanism to crowd source examples of "walking pieces" from around the globe.

Ten years ago when Web 2.0 and geo-located pieces were "new media", networks / forums of producers and artists evolved and may have created directories or maps, but now it's mainstream and no longer 'new' media and the initial surge for cataloging has diminished. 


Today little appears to be mapped and yet it is more easily created than ever - Sound Walk Sunday could be seen as nostalgic, but we think it could - with the right ingredients, including yourself and others - offer a popular platform for digitally enhanced walking experiences.

 

So we have designated Sunday 27 August as Sound Walk Sunday and we are on the look out for audio-enhanced 'walking pieces' or listening walks so as to create a directory and map - would you know whether anyone has ventured down this path of mapping such work before? or whether there is a bibliography or directory of 'walking pieces' on which we can draw? If you do contact us here.

The Tortoise and the Spider] a walking harp, Delphi 23 juli 22:48.

Made of Walking Delphi 2017 focused on outdoors movement practices and new technology / live electronics, inviting to new ways of co-operation in sound and movement while connected as (micro- or macro-) walking "webs" of people.

Ros BandtJon DrummondVermeire Geert and Katerina Drakopoulou were engaging with a group of movement artist/dancers in a collaboration of making a giant illuminated people spider aeolian harp which can be played and moved around, walking at night, connected with strings. A new sound composition was played with attached portable speakers and sound elements on the movement artists/dancers. The process involved the creation of a "human harp", a group in movement connected with each other and a tortoise harp, playing the strings that connect them in their trajectory, resonating with the ground and the landscape.

The performance will continue as a digital platform connecting webs of walkers around the world.

Evolving the act of walking in sound waves and webs is the conceptual and artistic proposal of Made of Walking in Delphi, focusing on ways of unfolding steps that restore a sound score of the dialogue between humans and the ground.

In a broader sense, this rhythmical duet intends an ecologic ‘sculpture’ of the earth through various walking webs. In order to create an orphic mapping of these “erratic” places and spaces.

Dancers/movement artists:

[Found Threads] Made of Walking Amfissa 2017

Alexandra Pambouka, Cyprus. July 17- 23, 2017.

 

 

The human being has always been moving for survival οr progression. Memories, customs and traditions are his only heritage - House.
In a shifting period the traditional patterns are not reproduced the same. Someone can ‘knit’ their own history by taking the "found threads" according to their measures.
The artwork can be in a continuously change (like humanity). It can be applied in any space, be rolled, be stretched and fit in a suitcase. Every time that it will be exhibited it will be in a different form.
The process of the installation could be a performative process in a public space, calling the audience to add their woven pieces. As a result the artwork will be a socially engaged practice.
Inspired from the urban and natural environment and the history of Amfissa, Alexandra sets up an installation using weaving techniques. The installation will be an interactive process with Amfissa’s residents, by asking them to add their woven pieces on the existing artwork "Found threads".

Reading the moment [Walking - Observing - Sensing - Being] Athens Greece 2015.

 


'There is so much to discover in every step. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. Attention shifts to Awareness. Let's walk together and wonder around... We are the space we inhabit. Have we looked at it carefully? We move and so does our relationship with our world. Let's (re)encounter our place. We become the place'

 

Reading the moment is a collective walking experience through the street of Athens. No other intention, no other expectation than experiencing place/space allowing our bodies to archive our version of the city. Emerging from a spontaneous convergence of people, practices and ideas this initial exploration of Reading the moment is a collaboration among Geert Vermeire, Stefaan Van Biesen, and Marielys Burgos Meléndez. A walkshop in the frame of Episodes of Urban Emptiness: Real and Imaginary Explorations of Silence in the Contemporary City. Edinburgh, Brussels, Athens. 

 

Geert Vermeire is a Belgian curator, artist and writer, working between Athens, Lisbon and Brussels, referring to the concept of ‘the body as measure unit’ using the senses and the body as instruments of knowledge, experience and creativity, departing from social practices, community involvement and the ethical involvement of cultural action.

 

Stefaan Van Biesen is a Belgian visual artist, multimedia artist, sound artist and writer. His oeuvre is focused on the research of walking as an instrument of knowledge and of artistic creation.

 

Marielys Burgos Meléndez is an independent artist/researcher from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her creative practice encompasses dance, performance art, movement and video installation, video art and creative writing. Through her current research, ISLA en FUGA, Marielys is dislocating herself, deepening in the experiences of mobility and survival strategies.
