Taking a walk with different eyes
Alexandra Horowitz, author of the New York Times bestseller Inside of a Dog, has recently published a fascinating look at the world around us with the help of additional sets of eyes. On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes recounts 11 walks, mostly through her New York neighborhood, accompanied by a different expert: geologist, urban sociologist, sound designer, child, and others. She details what they see and what they hear, and how that’s different than what she sees and hears. She’s on the phone with Thane Maynard to talk about this fascinating experiment and ultimately what she learns from it. She also mentions a study of human-dog play that is accepting videos through Sunday night.
Through the magic of video, you can talk a walk with Alexandra Horowitz around her neighborhood...enjoy this video and then talk a walk around your town with a different set of eyes.
