This installation contained elements of autobiography, documentary, map making, and collage. It was part of an evolution in my art practice to engage with specific environments, and reflect the everyday, both in materials and in process.
It was structured as follows: 20 equally spaced panels were placed on the floor of the gallery. Each panel boasts 24 photos displaying a variety of street marks and notations: a single panel indicated a single walk in an area of Victoria, creating an array of colours and seasons. Map fragments were exhibited surrounding the photographic series, with notations indicating each route taken while documenting the marks. The routes were randomly chosen, and the length of each walk was determined by how fast a single roll of film was shot. The photos were arranged chronologically on each panel.
