Sophie Calle

Sophie Calle is a french Artist. Her Walking art practise centred around following a stinger around the streets Paris. She documented these encounters through a series of photographs. this continued for an extended period of time through out the 1980’s. The exercise centred around the slaking of one individual, who she claimed was unaware of her presence. this individual was selected through “fate” when she came across him on a second occasion. She engaged in this activity ” because she didn’t know what to do with herself; she had no friends. “It was a way to force myself to get out of the house without having to decide what I was doing.”
