Track is an environmental work and moveable participatory installation that throws landscape through 90 degrees and sets it in motion. Face-up and camera-style, the viewer is gently pushed by their individual “grip” on a slow journey along a 150 metre length of dolly track and invited to gaze upwards.
For the participant, the work creates a shift in relationship with its environment. For the onlooker, that space is transformed by the vanishing tracks and the continuous, hypnotic motion of the viewers and the people pushing them. It has been installed in locations that range from tree canopies to motorway flyovers.
Track was co-produced by Artsamin and Entre Cour et Jardins and originally commissioned by Home live Art and Wandsworth Council Arts Team for The Shimmy.
A chance to embrace a vivid re-orientation, to look up and wonder at our earth-bound clumsiness
