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.
