The work investigates mapping 3-d objects and social spaces onto 2-d surfaces. It examines the material bases of mapping systems, and the systematic ways that spaces are plotted in architectural projections, GIS mapping, and cartographic projections. This data is transformed into spatial narratives. By so doing, the work explores the relation of drawing, regarded as a system of mark making, to contemporary data visualization systems and to the recording of memories.

These investigations consist of two related series: wall-based installations made up of spare projections described in thread, and drawings on mylar. In the wall installations, sewing thread is tied to brads to create partial outlines from different viewpoints, and, underneath, fragments of image information systems are drawn directly on the wall with chalk to suggest urban infrastructures, archival maps, objects, abstract marks, and timelines. Each piece is structured using projections combined together to allude to more than one space. Materials are used sparely in order to focus on the tension between not much and something.

The mylar drawings incorporate printed photographs. Lines are drawn with pencil onto these images and the printing ink is partly erased. One series dispenses with the digital altogether and plays descriptive lines off pencil marks in repeated grids.

The works document how materiality, space and temporal changes constitute visual, mapping systems wherein we remember places. The drawings attempt to incorporate a sense of place, not by fully defining objects but by partially outlining fragments.
