Hamish Fulton walk
Folkestone Triennial and lots of inspiring site specific works to visit...but I was just thinking that actually, while the works are extremely interesting, it's Folkestone itself that also becomes the work of art. The sketch was done while taking part in a Hamish Fulton walk - 100 of us walking very slowly across 3m of tarmac towards the shingly beach, with a view of the English Channel. No talking said the artist so actually everyone was silent for the whole hour. This ended with the solemn note of AK Dolven's bell that is sited next to the sea between two steel poles for the public to ring.
