Since looking at Richard Long’s works, I was thinking of making a more personal walking exercise based on self journey and transformation. Ill be looking at other artists with that focused on similar areas. I have been avoiding particular areas for a long time where significant people in my life had lived and passed away.
First place is bulli/corrimal region. I thought I would back trace particular places I walked to re live memories. I want to compare the change of the buildings from then and now and contrast this to how I feel. Documentation includes photographs and drawings. I dont want any rules, just a free – letting go approach what I decide to do in the moment.
The second place is the cemetery which actually isnt close to where they live, but I have not been there in two years so it is another area I am contemplating. But I am focusing my death walk and mourning mainly in bulli and places concentrated around there. Its a very emotional piece because I have always wanted to go back but never had the courage or desire. Its a place where nothing is left for me. A broken place.
