Last Sunday July 17th, I led a walk with the Walking with The Waste Land group in Margate. For more about Walking with the Waste Land which is a part of the wider project, A journey with The Waste Land, at The Turner Contemporary in Margate :

The walk was designed  by the walking research group  following an invitation by The  University of Kent to create a walk for a Sunday event  for delegates at  their symposium "Writing Buildings."  The symposium brought together the schools of Architecture and Literature on a three day conference looking at the intersection of literature and architecture.

I will be documenting this walk during a residency at the Sun Pier house gallery in Chatham in collaboration with the photographer Jennifer Deakin. The work will be on display until July 31st. and explores using ropes as a way of recording memories in the form of a "Quipu." Jennifer will be exhibiting her photographs which were taken during the walk. We hope you have time to visit!
