Lefebvre (1991:88) quoting Apollinaire

“O people that I know

It is enough for me to hear the noise of their footsteps

To be forever able to indicate the direction they have taken.”

A rhythmanalysis of GPS tracking of reindeer might reveal the different temporalities of actors, weather, reindeer, seasons, Sami lives, lichen growth, forestry industries, government agencies, laws, rocks, tree growth, snow thawing. This quote suggests that the footsteps form a sort of proximity through sound, the noise of footsteps indicates presence and direction.
