Walking is a conversation between the body and the world. It almost becomes a reciprocal and simultaneous act of interpretation and manipulation; an embodied and active way of shaping and being shaped. Walking has been the constant, the grounding during my Northumberland residency. It also became a vital source of inspiration. There is a fascinating history underfoot that marks landscape. A road or path is a record of those who have gone before: a sheep travelling an inherent trail; a walker retracing an ancient route; a shepherd droving his livestock to market.
