The track has been developed to be listened to anywhere in the world, but the content was developed in the area surrounding 87 Hackford Rd in London where Vincent van Gogh lived from 1873 to 1874. This period can be seen as a turning point in the artist’s life as it was during this year that he first experienced a period of depression, lost his job and began to seek out a new identity.

Van Gogh allegedly suffered from epilepsy, bi-polar disorder and delusions and this walk looks at mental health and how we might put ourselves in the vulnerable position of using our imagination publicly.

This audio walk marks a stage in an ongoing Artangel collaboration between CoolTan Arts, R.M. Sánchez-Camus and Pan Studios. A forthcoming project takes the research findings of this audio performance and transforms them into an interactive experience available via mobile devices, to be published in 2015.
