The Boundary Walk

Ian Nesbitt & Ruth Levene

Location: Woodplumpton and District Club (Preston)
Year: 2016

For their Expanded City project, Ian Nesbitt and Ruth Levene began examining the topography and cultural landscape of Preston by walking and recording the city’s political boundary. Their observations and experiences, including the neglect and destruction of certain public rights of way and the transient nature of landscape, due to development, farming and fracking in the area, formed the content for a performance lecture, which was presented during the Expanded City symposium. The work also initiated conversations with local residents and council decision-makers about issues pertinent to the City Deal scheme, such as the importance of maintaining public rights of way.
