Publisher Comments:

In The Walking Artist, Hamish Fulton documents his peripatetic self and its relationship to the world through which it moves. Fulton--born in London in 1946--initially studied sculpture, but in 1969 he turned to an artistic activity based on walking and graphic record of the walk. The Waling Artist documents various ''walking pieces'' from the early 1970s to the present day. Included are walks across all kinds of terrain--hills, mountains and forests--in regions as diverse as southern England, Peru, Bolivia, northern California, central Australia, Nepal, Japan, Baffin Island in Arctic Canada and France. Walking is the constant, he declares, the art medium is the variable.

Hamish Fulton's art is perfectly minimalistic, post-modern, experiential, intangible and, ultimately, undefinable. His art is the experience of walking, of taking note while walking, and meticulously recording the walk as it weaves through space and time. Easily mistaken for photography, his art is like Tibetan mandala sand paintings that are brushed aside upon completion, their moment of being having-been. There is no object or artifact resulting from his work, and the book contains the work in the way a mirror contains what it reflects.
