Thus Tess Walks On – Is an ongoing project which creates a terrain for Tess to wander through in Thomas Hardy's nineteenth century novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles. In my version of the story only Tess’s forward movement through the landscape of the novel remains, and as other characters join her along the way we can guess at the ongoing drama. The scheme is illustrated by a series of extracted texts and photo etchings. Tess’s traversing, along tracks, lanes and paths, seem now to be connected as one long and exhausting journey. (ongoing project)
