Listening as a Guest through Artistic Inquiries: Winter Walking


  • Rachel Epp Buller


My presentation at the WFAE conference detailed my current research-creation project exploring listening as an artistic methodology, focusing here specifically on walking as a mode of listening. I spent the winter of 2021-22 living in amiskwaciwaskahaikan, also known as Edmonton, Alberta, and during that time I embarked on a daily practice of walking as a way to listen in a place that was new to me, beginning to develop relationships with fellow human and more-than-human inhabitants.
