Fluid Walkscapes - Corporeal imaginaries stands as an invitation for a narrated sensorial walking experience and a world of imaginary realities, of physical objects and corporeal mappings. 

What does walking as an aesthetic practice mean? This project sets out to touch, unpack and immerse itself in the multiple realities walking offers, informed by an investigation on the function and imaginary potentials of a walking stick. Shaped by our fluid sensorial encounters to other bodies and things, it examines our embodiment in the city and the city within us. In current pandemic conditions walking is often perceived as a response to our oversaturated virtual existence. Fluid Walkscapes seeks to decipher walking as a timeless and transformative practice.

Constituted of a soundwalk, a constellation of sculptural objects and a complementary publication, this project stems from Walking Club Rietveld’s What We Walk About When We Talk About Walking; a collective study on walking in the framework of Studium Generale Rietveld 2021.
