Item description for Janet Cardiff: The Walk Book by Mirjam Schaub...
This is the definitive edition documenting Janet Cardiff's audio Walks in Paris, London, and New York. For these walks, Cardiff provided gallery-goers with walkmans which led them through the cities relying solely on the acoustic guide. The urban environment thus became the scene of a mysterious narrative in which the visitors became ever more involved. An artist's book with a CD that "guides" readers through the book with regards to text and illustrations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Janet Cardiff: The Walk Book?
sound and consciousness Jul 3, 2007
An amazingly engaging art book, almost a new form of writing in which the artist's work and her words and process diagrams are interlaced with adroitly framed essays on the background of her works, philosophical thoughts, discourses, side-journeys, mental experiments about the meaning of time and memory, explorations into listening and sound. Mirjam Schaub explains Cardiff's ephemeral walking pieces in a manner that is deeply sympathetic with her themes and the significance of Cardiff's voice. Each page rings with poetic truth and Schaub is selfless in presenting Cardiff's ouvre.
