A space is perceived by its boundaries. By looking at the walls, ceiling and floor, (effectively outside the space), we understand its dimensions and how they relate to our bodies. The piece perimeter started with tracing of the edges of the floor with the back of a brush found in the studio. This action generated a sound that was, in turn, used as a guide to create the series of drawings. As the speed of the drawing slowed down to stay within the boundaries of the paper, the relationship between time and space was reversed.

My work seeks to lavish high-resolution on some definitely low-tech elements. Reflecting an interest in the behavior of humble materials in odd situations, it exploits the margins of perception and the conventions of language.

Time can be compressed to uncover otherwise imperceptible activities, or the small and overlooked might be brought into view.
