This is the first work Long made by walking. Although it was made during the artist's first year at St. Martin's School of Art, it was only the start of a lifetime of making art by walking. Long made the piece simply by walking back and forth in a field to create an area of flattened grass which was visible only at certain angles. The line is a record of a journey, although short, and an expression of the energy taken to make it. This piece is typical of much of Long's works made outdoors, as it is an inherently ephemeral fragility and was not intended to last forever.
