Walking Flo's Embroidery

In Rebecca Solnit’s book Wanderlust, she says “To walk the same way is to reiterate something deep. To move through the same space the same way is a means of becoming the same person, thinking the same thoughts”.
Solnit goes on to describe a path as “a prior interpretation of the best way to traverse a landscape, to follow a route is to accept an interpretation, or to stalk your predecessors.”
Using my grandmother's embroidery as a template, this video of repetitive, meditative walking is an attempt to understand our similar paths.
