An interview to: The Walking Library

In October 2014 we visited artist and researcher Dee Heddon to talk about The Walking Library, an ongoing art project she created with Misha Myers that seeks to bring together walking and books. In January 2015 we became the readers of one of their libraries housed in Sweeney’s Bothy on the Isle of Eigg.

“Walking with a library of books, we wonder what these literary companions add to the journey; how collective reading and writing in situ affects the experience of the journey, the landscape and the experience of walking; how journeying and the landscape affects the experience of reading; how reading affects the experience of writing; and how a walk, as a space of knowledge production, is written and read.”
