“Let it be reduced to electronic impulses, into flow of information, shaken by
redundancies and noises, and let it be degraded into a swirling entropy.”
—Italo Calvino (from If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler)
For many years my artwork has used urban space as the base from which to probe broad questions concerning history, memory, and experience. My work is an exploration of the ways different modes of documentation—and then material and visual translations of this initial documentary “data”—can be positioned on varying conceptual and visual trajectories in relation to a corporal experience. My goal is to push down underneath the appearance of the visual environment in order to articulate something more basic about the mental and physical rhythm of moving though space, and more specifically, the experience of particularly salient locations in the urban environment.
