The parallel walking processes are now beginning. Elaine Ho in Beijing will be exploring the route there, whilst I am walking the route here in Cologne. We will be posting photos of parallel spaces on the blog. Our first exploration is to locate spots in terms of distance measured in human steps. Where are we in Cologne, where are we in Beijing, once we have made 600 strides away from the North Entrance of the architectural manifestations of our cultures, Cologne Cathedral and Beijing Imperial Palace.
For further information about the current planning stages of the project, see the film below.
the first plantings have been made:
27th March 2012 homeshop planting 1st April at Kiosk Babylon
By coincidence both, homeshop and Kiosk Babylon opted to include garlic gloves. Homeshop learned from the neighbour’s granny that all it takes is to push a glove into the soil, they (and we) also learned that in times of austerity even underwear can be mended.
