An audiovisual work documenting the artist’s daily walk in lockdown

an outside space by Sophie Stone

an outside space is an audiovisual work documenting the artist’s daily walk on the rural-urban fringe. The walk is a routine developed from the beginning of lockdown in the UK due to Covid-19 and the permitted one-hour daily exercise. An outside space is based on a score from Sophie Stone’s larger project postcard-sized pieces (2020-), which encourages engagement with an activity, and in this instance, an outside space. Sophie’s daily walk is documented through video footage, field recordings, and information such as location (e.g. what3words), weather, temperature, duration, and time.

This piece is best experienced with headphones
