MEANDER

Meander is a project by ADEPT (artists Shanaz Gulzar and Steve Manthorp) commissioned by Chrysalis Arts as part of their Slow Art programme.

Meander will be created by volunteers who will choose the route of a marathon walk throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Pairs of volunteers (who can be part of a larger group) will walk a section of up to two hours between chosen start and end points, while recording it on headband-mounted video cameras.

The two recordings will be edited together into a synchronised, split-screen film showing where the wearers were looking and what engaged their interest at every moment.  The film will be made available online so that anyone can enjoy any part of the walk from the participants’ perspective.

The artists hope that their artwork will encourage its audience to abandon the gallery and enjoy the landscape for themselves.

Thanks to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and to all Welcome Point participants.
