Participants joined a collective WhatsApp group. I then asked people to go on a walk wherever they are. As you walk, you can send audio messages of your actions on the walk as you are doing them, described in the present tense. 

After two weeks I created a soundtrack using all of the collected audio instructions together, so everyone has contributed to a collective #WalkCollage. Now you can go on a walk when you wish; put on the headphones; listen to the instructions in the soundtrack and following them all or just the ones you like, performing a collective #WalkCollage.

Born in Moscow. Based in London. Alisa Oleva holds a BA and MA from The Courtauld Institute of Art and an MA in Performance from Goldsmiths.  

She treats the city as her studio and urban life as material, to consider issues of urban choreography and urban archaeology, traces and surfaces, borders and inventories, intervals and silences, passages and cracks. Her projects have manifested as a series of interactive situations, performances, movements scores, personal and intimate encounters, parkour, walkshops, and audio walks.
