The Way of the Duck
Embodied Research
Eindhoven, 2021.

The Way of the Duck is a philosophy and practice developed from a prolonged period of embodying the humble Duck; the Duck of sunday afternoons at the park and daily morning walks by the river; the Duck of retirement and the Duck of childhood.

The bond between the Duck and the city is as historic as industrialised society itself: the Ducks and the parks they live in are a bastion of respite from the oppressively specified and normative domains of urban society; a place and an animal manifestation of play and frivolity itself. I crossed the barrier between species to explore what it is that we value in the Duck and to see what wisdom we might be able to extract and apply to the urban human condition.
