Long appropriates walking as an artistic gesture - an activity that fits somewhere between performance and sculpture. His works - serving as both art and record - adhere to a simplicity of form, referring to both the natural world and the ideals of geometry. Whitlock maps the bearing of land art, photography, and conceptual art on Long's work.
