Critical Walks looks at ways to explore a city on foot, translating statistical data into walkable paths. The central theme is the relationship between the body and statistics in dialogue with urban texture. It is about the consolidation of objective data with subjective observations. It aims at understanding and questioning critical aspects within the city of Oslo, such as immigration, inequality, and ageing through walking experiments and conversations. It is site-based, but it develops a method of investigation that can be re-contextualised in any another city, at any another time.
