Time On The Way

Action, photographs, notations / 2016

With Time on the Way I wanted to research how long periods of walking influence my understanding of time. I was counting hours and days of walking—using walking as time measuring device for my outer and inner state. The journey through North Spain, following El Camino (The Way) Frances—historically the most known and walked pilgrimage in Roman— took 29 days of which I walked for 24 and rested for 5 due to a foot injury. The methodology of the documenting process consisted of taking photographs and notes to which I assigned labels including the hour of the time spent of the way and the location where they were taken.

Time On The Way is part of a larger (MA) project About Time in which I explored its social, psychological, scientific and spiritual aspect through experiments in photography, writing and design.
