Starting 1 April, AAL student Martin Pirongs is undertaking a two-week walking project, ‘M25 Man’, to configure the outline of his own body on a giant scale. Taking a line for a walk, nearly 200 miles long, to create a unique connection with a city. Harnessing the art of GPS technology and the age-old power of walking – by pavement, path, road (and occasional field).

You can keep track of the trail as it’s created by watching the live GPS feed here – slowly revealing an image that will inhabit the M25 and become the size of London!

Martin is currently in his first year of our three-year Fine Art programme.
