The distance travelled by foot, travelled by hand (River Bovey Walk)
2008 - | Pencil on paper

A riverside walk was measured by pedometer and the same distance (6.643km) recreated by drawing a continuous line between two markers 50cm apart. Small wobbles of the hand disturb the precise measure and begin to form ripples that recall the flow of water and the strata of rocks. Sections of the work were shown in 'Torre Abbey Contemporary Open' (2009), 'Drawn In' (2009) and 'River Bovey Walk' (2008).
