Materials vary and may include time, education, weather, space, chance, God, memory, architecture, design, and other bits of nature.

In Chicago go to the Hyde Park neighborhood. From 5638 S. Woodlawn Ave. walk to 1407 E. 54th Place. This is approximately a one-mile walk, which should take you twelve minutes to make. This short trek retraces the daily walk of Laura Shaeffer, co-director of SHoP (Southside Hub of Production) from SHoP to her family home. Don't take this walk as art, even though it is. Pay special attention to how you take this walk nonchalantly. In other words, don't try to pay special attention to anything during your walk. Don't try to be freer, less occupied with your worries, fears and anxieties. Don't aestheticize or romanticize the walk in anyway whatsoever. Just do the walk. Let your mind do its thing. Let it worry about how you don’t have enough money, and how you fought with your partner. Let it mix your thoughts together the way it knows how to. Don’t think about anything special. Think about everything. Look at this card just to know how to get from one point to another. Don’t get lost.
