Not Moving Forward But Simply Moving: Walk, Write, Work (2015)

Not Moving Forward But Simply Moving: Walk, Write, Work is an honors study structured as an artist book, a form of art where the book operates as an object of art in its entirety. At the heart of this research project is an investigation into three key concerns: humans’ decreasing interaction with the natural world, particularly through their bodies; limited and decreasing access to wild spaces; and the human ability to use the body as one way to experience the world and to express emotion, data, and knowledge.

This project is an undergraduate honors thesis which was conducted in the fall of 2014 through the spring of 2015 at Connecticut College under the guidance of Heidi Henderson and Karen Gonzalez Rice.  The thesis is featured here on the Connecticut College Dance Department’s website.
