DOTE invited me to go on a walk together, in preparation of Walking with Grief, and I accepted. The task was to listen: to interesting people, to the sounds of nature or the city around me, to my own thoughts and then write a piece. Using the images that I collected, I tried to tell the story of a group of people walking together in separate geographies, experiencing similar processes within different realities.
Eye Wrote illustrated the story, allowing for multiple interpretations and engaging ways to listen. This first piece created for DOTE is a pilot for the year of listening, four more pieces will be created in the coming year, each after every week of events/meetings, the four ‘moments’ of the year.
