Walking in Landscape


It is impossible to experience a garden or a landscape without moving through it. Motion is and has been a central aspect of landscape design, as it is in the work of Richard Long and Hamish Fulton, land artists whose work are concerned with the very act of walking.

This guidebook, produced as a ruminative companion to walking the grounds of Castle Howard, was particularly inspired by Long and Fulton's poetic translation of site specific, time based acts of walking into multivalent works of pure textual representation which miraculously speak for themselves.

"We think of motion as if it were made of stillness, and when we look at it, we reconstruct it with the help of moments of stillness. Motion for us comprises one position and then a new one, and so on indefinitely." - Henri Bergson
