Luke Walker

Luke M Walker undertakes walks as part of his practice and often finds lost notes, hand written lists, reminders and sometimes poignant messages. In the past he just photographed them and left them where they lay, however for his Bankside Residency 2018/19 where he undertook eight, five mile walks he collected every note he found, amounting to thirty-two in all. He took a selection of the best ones and etched them onto copper plate, turning these ephemeral objects into something more permanent. These are chance moments of lives being lived, jobs done, communications and tasks completed. They are notes to selves and others that act as reminders to the author and recipient, but much like the snatched conversations overheard when passing others in the street, are also of the living embodiment of the city; an analogue object in a digital age.
