The aptly named Richard Long is an artist I first discovered while working on a walking project of my own. I was making things complicated by including a lot of different media and characters and layers, which I enjoyed. But I also enjoy the minimalism (and stark title) of this piece. I hope to re-read more about Richard Long soon–he made something of a career out of walking as art–and perhaps take some inspiration for a minimalist walk of my own. One word per mile? Then do it backwards.
