In this paper, I explore theoretical discussions that have emrged through the Walking Threads exercise, correspondences with Lembo, philosophical treatises by Deleuze and Guattari, and anthropological works by Ingold. The subsequent theoretical exploration has been an attempt in weaving together all these different correspondences by walking in the theoretical imaginations of Ingold and Deleuze. Walking Threads, I conclude, can be considered as an exercise or way of incorporating theory into practice.

Bibliographical note

I want to thank all the participants of the Walking Threads Event (this also includes the wind, the trees, the branches, by-passers, the thread, etcetera). I thank The Unfamiliar editors and reviewers. I want to particularly acknowledge Valeria Lembo whose questions and discussions formed the inspiration and encouragement to engage more intensively with Ingold and Deleuze. The article was made possible through the financial support of ERC Advanced Grant Arctic Domus. Any shortcomings are mine.
