Land Art that starts with walking

As a land art artist, one way to express yourself is by visiting mountains, rivers, and coasts,
I choose a method that starts with the terrain, climate, and contact with people.
I started using this method in earnest in the mid-1980s, and since then walking has become an important element for me.I would like to introduce some projects that have emerged from this method.
