I am currently updating materials from Walking Libraries AD in preparation for Spring/Summer 2022 projects. I will also be designing a designated website featuring images/writings related to drifting and floating.
I recently came across this quote from 2015, and it resonated with where I envision the 2022 version of WL and thereafter to venture:
“Each of us has their own strategy for navigating neighborhoods or linked pathways that are densely populated, commercial or industrial, and seemingly in-organic in nature. We are, as tumbleweeds ourselves, picking up random data bits and delivering them to new surfaces and zones that comprise our interwoven threads of daily existence.” — A. D.
More to come. You can follow along on Instagram, via #walkinglibrariesAD
“Time, place, materials, shelter. The essential elements that enable us to take root, find community, and gather ourselves during challenging times. Folded into this equation is the very notion of meaningful work, true purpose, and the myriad ways that we approach craft and the organization of workspace.” — A.D. studio
New terrain explored with a summer playlist assembled for Studio PRAIRIE. The songs and lyrics featured span my early land-based memories, broader ideas of nostalgia, historic research, and early mentorship with an esteemed ethnomusicologist and folklorist.
