from solitary to social paths
When solo footsteps are followed by others, a path is worn - like the one on the right in East Africa.
But when I studied the hillside below and the web of paths woven by sheep and wild goats, I started to think about the webs we lay in urban areas where the most dense walking patterns seem to now exist. What kind of resonances do our interlocking ways leave when concrete and tarmac refuse to hold our marks?
