“In early May 2020 during the first period of the Covid pandemic, we launched a series of Night Skulks, as a way of connecting back into a forbidden landscape. Being together without fear and experiencing life again, these walks, conducted individually or in small ‘family’ groups mimicked the night scavenging of urban foxes. But to make these night shift less literal we imagined ourselves as foxes, somewhat transformed into watery beasts, animals adapted to water, fluid and fleeting as the shadowy night. Tracing our way along a variety of water courses that flowed near to or by our homes’ front doors, our sensibility transformed now as hybrid animals, we confronted another sense of dwelling within this city. We witnessed the city, floating on a floodtide, no longer made up from firm ground, liquefied, returned to a silty marshland. We saw how this city unexpectedly quiet, with its emptied streets, offered us unusual opportunities to see the place anew.” (Charlie Fox – ‘Waylaid by bodies of water’ (unpublished chapter GroundWalking London: To Walk and Re-enchant the City forthcoming 2023)
