Walking Stories – A First Impression

Taking part in Walking Stories was beyond surreal, and transported you outside the boundaries of reality. You felt untouchable, like the appointed observers of the world charged with the responsibility of monitoring mankind.

The sensations of Walking Stories were overwhelming. Being instructed to pause and really look at the sky, translated into a powerful reminder of the magnitude of the universe in relation to a single self. This perspective is one we are rarely allowed to enjoy. When combined with the autumn light and the rest of the world continuing around us, unaware of the voice, ┬áthe experience became increasingly cinematic. I was reluctant to return to the ‘reality’ of the studio, and came away feeling as though my perspective of the world around me had been rebooted to provide a novel hyper-sensitivity to my surroundings.
