In civic planning circles, fifteen 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 two-part group exhibition produced by cross-disciplinary artists and writers from ASU. Starting from common points in both Tempe and Scottsdale, Arizona (home of the Museum of Walking sites 1 and 2, respectively) Radius artists took a prescribed 15-minute walk mapping their experiences.
Radius 2 expands upon the first exhibition by asking the public to take 15-minute walks from the common starting point of the Livery Studio Space located at 2nd Street & Brown in Downtown Scottsdale. Participants return to the Livery at the end of their walk to be a part of collectively mapping this ‘radius.’
Radius examines questions such as: What amenities 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?
