DescriptionIn “Walking a Turtle," players take a walk with a tortoise, based upon Walter Benjamin’s account of Parisian flâneurs. “Around 1840, it was briefly fashionable to take turtles for a walk in the arcades.” Part game, part quantified-self wellness tracker, “Walking” is a farcical tool for resisting the attention economy.
