The Walk #2 is a site-specific audio journey that thrives on a city and its little fictions. exploring the boundaries between interior and exterior, public and private, fiction and reality.
The journeys made especially for Verão Azul are based in the relationship between urbanism and nature, proposing a reflection on the concept of the Anthropocene. As humanity reshapes landscape, it forgets what was left behind, with no awareness that that forgotten past is haunting us. To what degree are we cosmopolitan formatted? Do we remember the existence of Shopping Mall A, B or C or is it like they were always there to us?
What if for brief moments our eyes land on rocks, plants, trees, the sky and other species surrounding us in a different way? What if instead of inhabiting a space like we usually do, we slow down our paces and allow ourselves for the space to inhabit us?
