I invite viewers to visit the shrines, either independently or on guided walking tours. I intend this pilgrimage to be an experience during which viewers are given the opportunity to try out an alternate way of understanding and engaging their immediate surroundings. The tour focuses on the overlay of geography, ecology, history, and technology onto present day land use and includes hidden components of university infrastructure, the former site of the Mason Gross sculpture department, and remnants of Camp Kilmer, a World War II military base.
To sign up for a tour, contact Anne at email@example.com. Full-length walking tours are at least two hours long and depart from the Livingston Arts Building of Rutgers University [directions]. Please wear shoes and clothing appropriate to walking the woods.
