Preparing media from a range of sources including field recordings and social media provided by walkers layered linear accounts kept surfacing, re-emerging and then loosing themselves in entanglements. This is a sample of moments in the edit suite when a coherence temporarily emerged and perhaps offers something of an account of the project in places.

Honouring Esther:

Two walks each lasting two days in Somerset, England and Lower Saxony, Germany. The line of a Nazi Death March transposed, returned and retraced, working with the testimony of human rights activist and Holocaust survivor, Esther Brunstein. The walks took place as Germany publicly welcomed refugees crossing the fields of Eastern Europe. Devised, curated and hosted with artist, Lorna Brunstein, Esther’s daughter. Both cycles of walks ended with an exhibition/installation.
