Social Abstraction

The Groundworks series operates at the intersection of formal abstraction and social engagement. Based on footprints, these patterns follows our movement and conditionally holds our histories in the ground. These surface iconographies, a residue that marks us routinely across space in time, though prosaic, routine, and overlooked- interest me as vestigial configurations of our collective history.
Significantly they resonate with the flow of human activity witnessed in social migrations.
