Artists Francisco Llinas-Casas and Paria Moazemi-Goodarzi have devised a downloadable, self-led ‘sound and vision’ walk, which encourages you to attend differently to Glasgow’s urban landscape.
Francisco and Paria spent time at Bothy Project’s Inshriach Bothy near Aviemore, where they recorded sounds, images, and impressions of the natural world which have found expression in their Feel Field project.
Starting and ending at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Climate Portal – a gold converted shipping container equipped with AV technology – this alternative nature walk explores our sense of place and dislocation, of intimacy and distance from what we call the natural world, and of walking as a social and political act.
You can choose to do a Self-Guided Walk or a Guided Walk. Each slot lasts one hour, and you are encouraged to contribute images and impressions taken on your walk to add to a collective display of the Feel Field project that will be shared on Saturday 20 November.
15 – 20 November, various times – Self-Guided Walks – book your one hour slot here
20 November, 2-3pm – Guided Walk with Paria and Francisco – book your place here
The activity is part of the University of Glasgow COP26 Hub at the 2021 Being Human Festival. Warm thanks to the Dear Green Bothy, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Shared Studios and Harrison Parrott for their support, and to the Walking Publics/Walking Arts research team for their inspiration.
