Walking Webs

A series of walks for the 4th World Congress of Psychogeography 2022

Walking Webs, hosted by Mathilda in Greifswald, Germany, was a project for the seventh 4th World Congress of Psychogeography, which took place in the summer of 2022. A series of walks to create a series of postcards, from anywhere in the world. Following the idea of 'walking together apart'.

The 2022 congress' programme was dispersed, taking place wherever participants lived or chose to be. While some events happened at a certain place and time, others were walked asynchronously, with results being shared afterwards.

 

Walking Webs was one of the latter. An invitation to create webs through walking, both in shape and in mind. To create a network by following a common thread. And to make local discoveries.

Participants traced their steps in the abstracted shape of a spider's web (see instructions below), added photographs and thoughts on their experience, and exchanged these like postcards.  #4wcop22 #walkingwebs
