April 28 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Under the Mopac Expressway on Veteran's Drive

The Walks project is inspired by a dérive or flâneur, both terms loosely refer to a drifting or strolling through an environment to experience the sociological, anthropological, historical and geographical relationships between the individual and their city. The Walks project is at its core an exploration of the city; with a concerted effort to break from routine and experience your environment from a different vantage point and at a slower pace.

Walk #1 – Thursday, April 22nd 10:00 am
The first walk starts at Big Medium, 5305 Bolm Road.

Walk #2 – Wednesday, April 28th 10:00 am
The second walk starts under the Mopac Expressway on Veterans Drive.

Walks exhibition at Big Medium
Opening reception Saturday, May 1st 5:00 – 9:00 pm
This exhibition will display various found objects, paths taken, and other forms of documentation collected by participants from both walks.

SODALITAS (Jana Swec, Joseph Phillips and Shea Little) explores the process of collaboration through a variety of media. Their work deals with issues ranging from their own interpersonal dynamics to globalization and international politics. During Fusebox, SODALITAS will embark on two walks, and they encourage participation from anyone interested in joining them. The group will begin at the same location, but may not necessarily move together, an important aspect of the Walks is for the traveler to take their own path, whether they pursue their own route or walk with others. Each member of the walk is encouraged to document their path with photography, video, audio, mapping and/or collecting objects found along the way. The documentation of these walks will be displayed at the Big Medium gallery.

If you would like to participate in one or both of the walks, please arrive at the proper location at 9:30 am to check in. You should bring any materials or equipment you would like to use to document the walk. Suggested items to bring: sketch pad, camera, video equipment, audio recorder, pencils, pens, zip-lock bags, gloves, snacks, water, and sunscreen. Suggested items to wear: backpack, hat, comfortable walking shoes, and light clothes. For more information visit

The Walks exhibition, at Big Medium, will also be open on Sunday, May 2nd from 12:00 - 5:00 pm. For more information visit or call 512-385-1670
