In 2014 Ernsten and Nick Shepherd, both at the time based at the University of Cape Town, began organizing Walking Seminars along three lines of inquiry:
1) exploring the intersection between conventional scholarship and forms of artistic research and practice;
2) using walking as a methodology to engage landscapes and histories;
3) rethinking time, materiality, and memory.
In 2017 photographer Dirk-Jan Vissser joined the project. Please read more about this project here.
