Caitlin Rowley has recently completed two new sets of WALKS videos with her collective Kaths Kaff with artists Katie Hanning and Jon England. WALKS 5-8 and 9-12 are a small digital artwork commission from Electric Medway, created for the online programme of their 2021 festival.
These videos are the latest elements of Kaths Kaff’s Walks project, which started in late March 2020 when Katie Hanning suggested that the group use their government-mandated one-hour walks as a prompt for creative responses. Responding according to their interests, skills and access to technology, the group gathered videos, photographs, field recordings, drawings and other media, all responding to their walks taken in their local areas in Kent, Bristol and Somerset. The WALKS videos combine original responses and interpretations of material from all three artists in sets of interlinked one-minute videos designed to exist both in four-minute connected sets and as one-minute looping uploads for Instagram.
