For the fourteen weeks of the 'Waterlog' exhibition in Lincoln, seven different landscape paintings from the Lincolnshire Collections were hung in the gallery, all but one of them veiled with black silk.

Every fortnight, a different painting was unveiled, and an audio recording was made during a walk undertaken by Pope, in the company of a different writer. These audio files, made available through this site, recorded the writers attempts to commit the designated paintings to memory and recollect them in detail, out in the open countryside.

The seven walks and the corresponding audio files can be accessed through this site alongside the earlier series of ten walks and ten audio recollections, accompanying the Norwich exhibition of 'Waterlog', which can be accessed via the link at the bottom left.
