Body Habitat Walking: join Lily and Lisa for their talk and walk: Tuesday, July 27th, 7pm, at Project Space

Body Habitat Walking is propelled by many curiosities:

What does walking and our feet have to teach us?
What of the commoditization of the natural body walking into a sport-based activity, or a method to lose weight, or a way to raise money for good causes?

Who benefits and who loses when we walk?
The geo-architectural planning implications of a culture that does not walk?
The development of psychosocial personality & belief structures (many fear & class based) that become reinforced in the Mind that does not walk on the planet?
The character of physical weariness & longing of the body that does not walk on its native landscape?

Is walking a way to recover the paradise-cycle of being lost, found, lost, and found again, repetitively throughout a lifetime?
What of the eco-political forces that keeps us dependent on wheels instead of feet?

Can walking weave an awareness of fragility and mortality into our everyday lives?

Body Habitat collaboration project is fueled by a collective curiosity and investigation into the human body and its endeavors into and on the natural landscapes. The ones we either imagine or encounter: both wild and populated. --- Body Habitat artists' statement
