We walked last Friday from Dundas Street Gallery to Inverleith House, in the Royal Botanical Gardens. Here a photo diary of readings and a task based intervention with rope by Naomi Garriock.
Ropes and knots are an important part of documenting the walks and Naomi created some interesting tasks to develop our knot making prowess.
I am still smiling from the experience and so amazed by the City of Edinburgh and all the wonderful artists and academics that help to create this walk. For more about the walk please visit:http://elspethpenfold.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/precario-1990-cecilia-vicuna-maximum.html
