Just back from a breaktaking couple of days on the East Devon coast. A project blog will appear on EcoArtScotland shortly..
Earthwalking evoked a complex but integrated response to and about the Devon coastline, the meaning of walking, the meaning of community and the future imprint of communities on the environment. At no time during Earthwalk was anyone told what to think and yet thoughts and discussions naturally and organically flowed into these areas because of the style and structure of the project. In this way the project proved itself to be in line with its own ethics and was in and of itself a sustainable and organic art piece (participant)
I felt a strong sense that we were somehow touching base with some quite fundamental things. For my part, the event will serve as a real and important reference point (academic collaborator)
The whole project enhanced my sense of smell, sound and vision (participant)
