Photographs from my feet walking
Eryn Foster organized a week long residency for seven artists on Pictou Island in July 2014.  Pictou Island Portage residency was invitation to walk, think and create while traversing the 9.5 kilometer long island on a daily basis. 

I approached the act of walking as a process photograph. Each morning I strapped photo paper to my feet and walked on the paper, while pushing a line of chalk down the road to the end of the island. The photo paper was developed at the end of the day and washed in the ocean. Each day has two pieces of photo paper, one for each foot.
