1 KM.

During the confinement established to face the COVID-19 crisis in France, a rule was put into place that permitted “brief displacements, within the limit of one hour daily and within a maximum radius of one kilometer around the place of residence”. (https://media.interieur.gouv.fr/deplacement-covid-19/).

Following this rule, I traced a 1 km radius circle on a map around my house and decided to walk on each and every path I could to reach the imposed limit. Arriving at the “border”, I drew a line on the floor. Once the legal limit of my movements was marked, I turned around and walked back home before reaching the one hour time limit.

The result are fragments of a circle delimiting my personal border. The distance is based on the position of one’s house, so each person has their own border. My goal was to reach this intangible limit and, from there, contemplate the temporarily inaccessible beyond.

I finished the 1 KM. project on May 10th 2020, one day before the end of the confinement in France. I reached 21 border points and wandered around 60 km in total.
