'Pilgrim' was an attempt to test the artist's faith, or lack of it, by walking the length of St Michaels Way, a path that links the Hayle Estuary on the North Coast of Cornwall with Mounts Bay on the South Coast.

St Michaels Way was a route taken by Pilgrims in the Middle Ages. The artist wore a scallop, the traditional badge of the Pilgrim, but in place of a staff he carried a pole bearing a video camera and in the haversack, in place of a bible, he carried texts by recognised atheist writers like Neitszche and Marx.
