Striving to expand the parameters of an allusive act, I set about encapsulating the experiences surrounding an act of physical and psychological endurance (that part of me that lives on vague nostalgia). This would include; the journey to the site, scoping out the space and the post-performance walk home. Attaching the photographic documentation to the bottom of my boots (the ground of the space as it was during the original act), I would retrace my steps by returning to the site in which I engaged in the nostalgia work. The aftermath of which would question that which is considered ‘art’ within a project’s timeline.
