Around Edinburgh / The Milkman

The Milkman
7 Cockburn Street

Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller present Night Walk for Edinburgh, an intimate, one-on-one video walk in which the audience are guided by specially created video through Edinburgh’s Old Town at twilight.

This walk uses a digital tablet and a pair of headphones to be collected from The Milkman, 7 Cockburn Street. It is a night walk in the Old Town of Edinburgh and the route includes staircases, steep hills and uneven surfaces in low light. We recommend comfortable shoes and appropriate clothing.

This art work involves approximately 1km of walking on pavements. The route goes over some cobbles and uneven surfaces. There are 122 steps up and 43 steps down and some steep slopes. Throughout the walk, participants listen to audio through headphones as they hold and watch a small screen which plays film. A subtitled version is available on request at the time of the event, subject to availability.
