The walk is about home and has Copenhagen as the scene. What kind of homes and residential areas are there? What happens when one or more bodies inhabit a place? How does it influence our experience of the place and encourage new ways of socializing?

Each score encourages involvement and a different new outlook on the surroundings in different residential areas.
