Memorandum for walking

Memorandum for walking is a pair of altered sneakers designed to record sensory information from walking in them. The sneakers have five pressure sensors embedded into the soles of each shoe. Data from each sensor is recorded to an SD Card through a microcontroller and custom software. This recorded data is used as the foundation for a series of sculptural works, with each one uniquely addressing where the walk was taken. The first of these walks took place in the Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown, MA, where I followed coyote tracks through the sand dunes in the Province Lands.
