As we fall we walk
As we fall we walk focuses on the concept of mobility and movement by exploring ideals of perfection and disconnection between body and mind.
By combining references to the trivial and the unequivocal, this joint research-based project by Paul Deslandes and Tine Bek interrogates perceived prevalent presuppositions on our ability to move in a frictionless structure, and investigates the notions of perpetual motion, system degradation, freedom and constraint associated with movement.
