Like a Whisper is a collaborative project to photograph the traces of human and geologic activity on the land; a geography resulting from years of scarring and healing leaving marks on the land, much like the erasures and scrapings in old manuscripts on precious vellum, resulting in a palimpsest. We expressively document these layered marks at sites of Ancient Rome occupation along the path of Hadrian’s Wall in northern England using mobile technology. Our process is best characterized as call and response, like a jazz riff where one musician offers a phrase and another responds; a photograph is made that gives rise to others. It is an inventive process of exploration and discovery where our collective experience, our shared finding is greater than any individual’s seeing and the outcome is enlarged. www.like-a-whisper.com
