As we fall we walk is a collaborative research project with artist Tine Bek. The body of work focuses on the concept of mobility and movement by exploring ideals of perfection and disconnection between body and mind. By combining references to the trivial and the unequivocal, As we fall we walk interrogates perceived prevalent presuppositions on our ability to move in a frictionless structure. In this joint research-based project Deslandes and Bek investigate the notions of perpetual motion, system degradation, freedom and constraint associated with movement.


As we fall we walk was supported by Glasgow International and Studio Pavilion
