Love walking and live in Yorkshire? Read on, we have just the thing for you!
Two artists are looking for volunteers to walk in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, recording their progress on tiny head-mounted cameras. So if you regularly walk your dog in the area or even just love a ramble, then this could be for you!
The project is called Meander and has been created by artist duo Shanaz Gulzar and Steve Manthorp, who work together as ADEPT.
They are looking for at least two volunteers for each walk, and each pair of recordings will be edited together into a synchronised, split-screen film showing where the wearers were looking and what engaged their interest at every moment.
All films will be made available online so that anyone can enjoy any part of the walk from the participants’ perspective, building up an online video archive of creative walks and interesting places.
So if you want an excuse to get out and fancy being part of this unusual project then - please contact the artists directly at email@example.com, or call Shanaz Gulzar on 07816 526121 / Steve Manthorp on 07507 400489.
To select your walk visit the Meander website www.adeptprojects.co.uk.
This project is part of the SLOW ART movement being pioneered by Chrysalis Arts, a public arts company based in North Yorkshire.
Let us know if you take part – we’d love to hear your story and see your pics!
