I have addressed the issue of how to portray human interactions
and connections that we often sense like palimpsests just under the skin, for over two

decades. However, the idea of exploring this part of humanity via pathways through
landscapes, seascapes, and mindscapes arose within the past five years, during a trip to northern Minnesota, where I was surrounded by nature that in turn led me to read “The Old
Ways,” by Robert MacFarlane, and to mapping my own walking, then biking and
sailing paths using GPS.
Often these pathways are one continuous trail, which the viewer can follow. Sometimes, they are broken or encounter barriers, much like in life, and are more difficult to follow.
