Why Walking?

February 21, 2009

We think of drawing as a way of looking at and connecting with the landscape we move through. Drawing, as walking, are experiences that take their time, and are both activities that provide a greater attention and focus on what is around you at every moment.

“The rhythm of walking generates a kind of rhythm of thinking, and the passage through the landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. This creates an odd consonance between internal and external passage, one that suggests that the mind is also a landscape of sorts and that walking is one way to traverse it.”
