Where I Go Walking is a series of 6 fabric pieces based on walks taken with 5 different residents/ interns at Art Farm, in Nebraska as well as a walk taken alone. I asked each participant to take me on their own tour of the farm, taking me perhaps on a habitual route or to places that had sentimental meaning to them. As we walked, I recorded our conversations and movements.Each piece was made from fabric gleaned at a Goodwill near the farm and each frame was made with wood found on the farm.
This project was born out of my interest in how I could navigate a new place through the memories and directions of others who lived there and knew it intimately.
Google map of all the walks, with points of interest plotted.

Each quilted piece has a corresponding audio track that narrates the walk.
