Marshland & Mythogeography

Marshland & Mythogeography | Exploring Mucking,Essex | Scoop.it

Marshland is a delirious tapestry of tales and adventures in the marshes of London; it mixes first hand accounts of wandering with suspicious histories and wild, closed and obsessive fictions. Its initial and abrupt shifts of perspective settle quickly into a spectral ecology that weaves together its trangressive bodies of concrete history and memory with a Polaroid immediacy and yet seemingly beyond the ken of any organisation. Until that is the whole slimy, shiny, bearskinned things is locked in disarming combat with deadly Olympic ‘Games’      

Gareth E. Rees was first led into these voids of Hackney, Leyton and Walthamstow by his dog Hendrix; exploring the stinky wounds that open up when the rest of a city is squeezed by development. In these stretched spacetimes of marshland, Rees slips in, slips moorings, slips between selves and characters, lets slip the dogs of word, and then just slips some more until we read on to save ourselves from going under. Where the rest of the city is up for grabs, here something gentler and more unsettling stirs for a while, something that embraces and drowns, shifts silt and rehydrates old water treatment systems as public art until it is all in turn ruined by its installation. A tiny epic.

Why walk the Mauerweg?

Why walk the Mauerweg? | Exploring Mucking,Essex | Scoop.it

In these explorations of the Berlin Wall Trail documented on Traces of a Border, one ambition remains unfulfilled: to set off from home on the long walk, returning only when all 160 kilometres are behind me. I have walked much of the Mauerweg already; ten kilometres here, twenty kilometres there. I have completed several sections numerous times, often alone, occasionally with a group. My desire to ‘walk the wall’ over seven or eight days has led some to question my sanity. Others, more pragmatic, suggest it might be quicker to ride my bicycle. But ever since I learned of the creation of the Berlin Wall Trail I was eager to make the circular journey – through and around the city – on foot.
