What the world becomes | 2006 | Mixed media installation

"I trace the flights of birds, using the window as vantage point, drawing surface and printing plate. This transparent plane marks the point where the birds' drawings in space become my drawings of space: where the three-dimensional and fleeting becomes the two-dimensional and fixed."

This drawing installation records a series of observations made over the course of a day. Bird flight paths were traced from and on 13 different windows for 10 minutes an hour 08.00 to 20.10 on 18 May 2006. Shown at Plymouth University BA Show (2006).
