In June-July 2011, I hitch hiked back from Athens to London as a performance. Encountering people along the way to engage in this one on one exercise of trust and exchange. Facing forwards, side by side we help each other somehow.
Diagonally backwards traces my journey with images of places I waited for a lift, and stories of people who I encountered along the way.
This piece was presented as a live performance on the 24th September 2011 at BasementArtsProject in Leeds at the exhibition Speakeasy:Art in an age of prohibition.
