Richard Long’s art originates in walks made in Britain and abroad. In addition to photographing sculptures made along the way and producing annotated maps of his routes, he also records the walks in text form. He describes walking as art as ‘an ideal means for me to explore relationships between time, distance, geography and measurement.’ Long sets himself unique and specific routes - this work records a walk he made in France in 1995. This image is from the ‘Travaux Publics, Public Works’ portfolio, which explores different ways of using text and language in art. Each artist made a proposal for a work which was shown in a public space as well as being reproduced in the portfolio.
