Movement - A Walk in the Streets (Individualism reconnection)

“Walking . . . is how the body measures itself against the earth.”
- Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking


This is a small 41 secs video of two women walking the streets of Rome and Singapore. In the video, we are documenting the wonderful movements we encounter in our daily walks around the cities. For us, decolonisation is breaking the need to be dependent and trying to find ways to empower ourselves to be independent. Due to the pandemic, the need to be lone walkers resonates a lot.

“Walkers are 'practitioners of the city,' for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as
language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.”
- Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
