Exercises


After taking a snapshot several days earlier,
I grabbed my tripod and camera and waited for the rain to stop. I then got into my car and drove towards the forest.
I left the car in the car park, took my equipment, locked the car and walked ten minutes to the location. I then set up my tripod and camera, took off the lens cap and started shooting.

After taking the shots, I put the cap back on the lens, took the camera off the tripod, slid the tripod legs together and walked back to where I left my car.  I got in, drove back to my studio, parked the car and went inside.

It had started to rain again.

Nocturnal walks

Three recordings of public silent walks:

On July 22, 2020, from 4:30 till 5:30 AM, I made a silent walk in the city of Dordrecht.
I named the audio recording after Adri, with whom I made my very first silent night walk 50 years ago.
The audio recording is an unedited realtime track.

An exercise in symmetry

We were both walking in unspecified areas.
We called each other and we kept our phones close to our ears.
We did not speak but listened for 30 minutes, synchronised our rhythms.
