Richard T. WalkerOn Landscape and Desire

In a 2018 video from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Richard T. Walker discusses his conceptual sculpture a paradox in distance, which was included in the museum’s exhibition Soundtracks. Talking about this sound-based work, he describes the allure of distance in both landscapes and romantic relationships, and reflects on the ability of music to fill the gaps between meaning and expression that words often fail to bridge.
