Books+Leaves
(Walked performance, 2013)

Collaboration with Dee Heddon, lecturer at Glasgow University

Participants joined artists for a Walking Library event to discover, commemorate and celebrate the rich diversity of arboreal life in the city of Glasgow. 

Artists carried rucksacks filled with books about trees - fiction, fact, poetry, autobiography and plays. Particpants read from books at different points along the route: observing, thinking, learning and sharing stories about trees and our connections with them. Walk began at an oak tree planted in Glasgow in 1918 to mark the suffragette movement and ended at an oak tree planted in the very centre of Glasgow University campus around the same time.
