Drawings 2005: Open Source


Open Source

The drawings in the series Open Source  function as mental maps that attempt to diagram the experiential qualities of time and space. They reference the paths, networks, nodes and hubs of both the digital and urban landscapes. They reflect on the technologically mediated spaces that we inhabit and interact with such as working with software, using a database and surfing the Web.  In my practice I am interested in the perception of time and space, and how, as our experience of time and space shifts, so does our perception. I am also interested in how and where we situate ourselves as subjects in relation to our technocratic society. My drawings are a site of reflection on these issues. The drawings integrate diaristic component that incorporates aspects of the everyday such as calendars and notations that serve as freeze frames of an ongoing and open-ended narrative.
