“On June 21, 2008, shortly after dawn, WALKER, a Los Angeles artist, will launch 6,564 yards of clear packing tape in the form of thirty zafus (Zen meditation cushions) that will traverse the length of the Los Angeles River, from the Sepulveda Dam to the Long Beach Harbor, a distance of over forty miles. A contingent of monitors/documenters will follow on bicycles to record the progress of these pod-shaped objects until they reach the harbor where they will be retrieved by boat to prevent them from going out to sea. No animals or environments will be harmed as a result of these actions.
“This project is the inaugural event for L A L O C A, a recently conceived arts organization dedicated to promoting idea based art. WALKER is a Los Angeles based artist.”
