Maria Whiteman and Imre Szeman

Maria Whiteman and Imre Szeman propose a project titled, Critical Peripateticism which is a practice that explores through text and photographs spaces that are not usually intended for walking but meant to be bypassed on the way to more lucrative appealing visual landscapes. By walking through structured spaces of contemporary urban derivatives such as freeways, business parks, commuter routes, strip malls, etc this collaborative group plans to create a photo-essay from walks along freeways through Banff, residential developments in Canmore and urban trails and industrial parks in Calgary. These photo-essays intend to explore the relationship between nature and industry in accordance to experiences of space.
