Hamish Fulton

Hamish Fulton is a British Walking Artist

"Walking, one of the most basic of human activities, has long been both the inspiration and subject of exploration for artists. Walking is a way of measuring, a way of encompassing a territory; its pace and rhythm creates a frame in time and space which is delegated by the person walking. In his walks Hamish Fulton actively tests himself and his body: he has undertaken a full week of walking without sleep; he has walked from one side of the country to the other; he has refrained from talking for a full week while walking.  The physical involvement of walking creates receptiveness to the landscape and this accessibility opens the potential for any individual to take part; to make one aware of the environment, and of oneself."  Full article here
