Protected View Walk, Storm King
Public walk, 90 minutes, participant drawing, proclamation, signatures
On a beautiful August day we started with a discussion about the history of Storm King Mountain and the early environmental movement that protected it from a major industrial project, one that would have destroyed an ancient view of the Hudson River. To begin our exploration of the landscape we bliss-walked through an open field, examined the sand grains in Momo Taro by Noguchi, responded to the smell of a sculpture, talked about edible weeds and at last began our search for a landscape that we could proclaim as “protected” from any future intervention. We voted. The petition was signed and submitted.
