Walking The Landscape

Walking Off The Grid and The History of Walking talks by Michael Höpfner and Professor Tim Ingold

Michael Höpfner, a walking artist from Austria, has been walking in many places around the world. For this project, Walking off The Grid, he is spending 14 days circling Huntly on a 30 mile route around the Strathbogie area. His walk takes him through Gartly, Glass, Drumblade, Drumdelgie, Cairnie, Rothiemay, Kinnoir and the surrounding countryside. During this time he is reconstructing the geography of the landscape through the conversations, meetings and experiences along the way.

Michael finishes his walk this weekend and will be presenting the outcome of his project along with images and videos on Sunday 9 December, 4.30pm at the Huntly Hotel.

He will be joined by Professor Tim Ingold from the Anthropology department at Aberdeen University who will be giving a talk on the History of Walking.
