About the episode
Dr Agustin Chevez, adjunct research fellow at Swinburne University’s Centre for Design Innovation knows a thing or two about boredom.
In 2018, Chevez set out on a journey from Melbourne to Sydney, not by plane, train or car – but on foot. The 905-kilometre walk from Federation Square in Melbourne to the Sydney Opera House took him 42 days. Chevez calls it a modern-day pilgrimage, with the goal of exploring the relationship between distraction, isolation and the incubation of ideas.
Two rules governed Chevez’s trip – he had to be alone, and he had to avoid distraction.
