This is the cumulation of several performances. Below is a brief re-cap: Let’s Take a Walk…I Need You (LTAW #35), began it’s two-month event on The International Day of Peace, on October 2nd. The schedule of performances was as follows:
From September 21st to the 29th – Knitting… I Need You took place at the three selected locations, at various times.
October 2nd – On the International Non Violence Day Let’s Take a Walk #35, the Twitter-guided walk began at 6.30pm at Union Square, by the Mahatma Gandhi Sculpture. People were able to join in from around the world via Twitter by following @mcayer. Please note that although this is where the walk took place, there were two additional starting points planned for this event, those being The Imagine Mosaic in Strawberry Field and The United Nation marking the arrival point of the 1967 Anti-War demonstration lead by Martin Luther King. The walk lasted 20 minutes.
October 3rd & 4th – Schlepping & Displaying – Walking along the paths taken during LTAW #35 displaying physical remains (knit elements) from the walk. This took place an an impromptu event on Union Square, Strawberry Field and the United Nation.
