Sara Bowler on Space>Hopper Travel Scheme

Bruce’s piece questioned acceptable uses of the countryside and asked participants to consider how it is both used and managed for the future. If the land is no longer the source of food, what is it for? By encouraging people to engage in an apparently ‘leisure’ activity – bouncing round a preset track on a space hopper – he humorously raised awareness of how we physically engage with ‘landscapes’. He also raised consideration of how people take travel for granted in the West. If we had to put as much effort as bouncing on a space hopper requires into our daily journeys, we might be more circumspect about our expectation to travel considerable distances on a daily basis.
