RhyThm Walk is inspired by the experience of deep thought induced by long distance walks. The human body in motion creates a rhythm; hip joints roll, knees bend and ankles flex, on one side of the body then the other. This rhythm is embedded in the human subconscious and encourages a contemplative state.
In urban environments attention is directed to the external world by loud sonic and architectural information. Combining visual fluctuations and multilayered 5.1 surround sound, RhyThm Walk seeks to re-direct attention internally.
The visual content of the film is derived from audio rhythms generated by a sonic walking belt which was designed to convert the rhythms of human motion into audio samples via a series of tensioned strings.
