For my final Master's thesis at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, I was given a creative option, and what I created is displayed here. It is, ostensibly, a journal, written by a naturalist named Chapman and documenting the discovery of a fictional "Walking Utopia"called Peripatea. In this kingdom every element of society is created with the act of walking in mind. Using the myriad of ways humanity has ascribed meaning to walking over the centuries, I built a full society- complete with new religion, farming practices and scientific advancement- and then crafted artifacts charting its discovery by the outside world.
These are some of its pages.
