“People have a kind of mental radius of how far they are willing to go on foot that seems to be shrinking . . .” - Rebecca Solnit
 
In civic planning circles, 15 minutes represents the amount of time people are willing to walk to reach a location by foot.  Radius explores what lies within that zone which is deemed “walkable.”
 
Radius is a group exhibition produced by students in the graduate seminar, On Walking, with Professor Angela Ellsworth. Starting from a common point (Tower Center Suite 206 at Arizona State University, home of the Museum of Walking) Radius participants took a prescribed 15-minute walk mapping their experiences.
 
Radius examines whether there are amenities that sustain us? Are there pathways, walkways, and spaces that nourish city dwellers? How do we know when we’ve reached the edge of our own walkable range?
