line is a dot that went for a walk.”

What to expect from ‘Taking a Line For a Walk’

This class can be as simple as “what happened from the time I woke up until the class started?”, to a more complex look at your life to date, or how your dog explores on their daily walk, or how a line of ants navigate across a terrace. WHAT? This is about trying to capture the passage of time in a 2D, linear form. It may be abstract, it may be figurative.

You will be looking at mapping, memory and travelling through your day. You will start with a dot, and take it, as a line, through your day, your life so far, or into your future. This seems like quite a lot to squeeze into an hour and a half. The principles are the same for many journeys, whether physical, or otherwise.
