Ruth Levene and Ian Nesbitt – The Expanded City

For The Expanded City, Ruth Levene collaborated with Ian Nesbitt to examine the topography and cultural landscape of Preston by walking and recording its political boundary. As well as artistic research and discussion, enacting the boundary walk enabled Levene and Nesbitt to perform intensive research into the official and unofficial walking infrastructure of Preston’s edge lands. They presented their research in the form of a performance at The Expanded City symposium.
