‘Walk during a landscape’ is an investigation of time and space. A walk in the hills functioned as a starting point.. A layered grid of elastic threads filled up the whole space. It formed a kind of 3-D diagram in which I wanted to record the passage of time horizontally and the elevation in space vertically by attaching another series of elastics to it. The latter disrupted the order of the grid completely. This system was applied in a subjective way: for example if I would be lying on my back on the top of a hill for hours I would attach a long thread on a high level in the grid, if I would run down hill I would use a short piece. Rather than being an accurate topographic record of the landscape the map took a personal shape.
