Walking around the entire mega city of Beijing

This walking exploration, playfully titled #WalkInProgress, is an ongoing art research project. The first objective was to circumnavigate Beijing using the 6th ring road as a marker to explore the outer regions of the city. The walk was approximately 250km and was completed in 7 days by following paths and roads that ran close to the express way and dipping into nearby towns. To understand and determine the gigantic scale of this world mega city and it's forever changing geography the project was hatched from a feeling of necessity. Along the way particular attention was paid to the communities, development, transport, industry, environment and curiosities. Walking deep into the night offered a glimpse into a city that certainly never sleeps. It's was an education.
