Clairvoyance (walking the words of others) | 2011

For this project, I did not wish to put my own words forward as an individual projection, for we are far too familiar with walking our own words. This word I walked, ‘clairvoyance’ comes from someone else, and I am now walking it, trying my best to delicately carry this word in my bodily movement and rolling it over in my thoughts as I write it through the urban landscape. This word I embody is a hope that emanates out of relation with others (not ‘to’ others), to allow myself to be of service to the other, to be myself changed as I walk, recreated even in every step. If this recreation can occur in the minute space of one person’s walk through the totality of an urban landscape, then perhaps the world inherently carries the potential for recreation as well.
