#ThreadandWord is a walk with sited readings of Cecilia Vicuña’s poem ‘Word and Thread’ written at Inverleith House in 1970.
The walk extends a walking practice which considers contextualised
modernity. As we walk we will reflect on notions of time and timelessness, consciousness, memory and rhythm through sited readings.
In response to the impossibility of replicating or describing the experience of walking #ThreadandWord also explores the practice of documenting walks with threads and knots.
