This is a site-specific installation based on lines that our body creates in space when we wander around. More specifically this piece refers to my personal walks around Iceland that I undertook when I was there for a residency back in 2015.
The lines are taken from memories of my everyday walks in the landscape rather than relying on GPS or other technologies. In contrast the material I use is mainly steel metal which refers strongly to industrial aesthetics rather than natural surface. This was to emphasise the role of memory in my creative process. Particularly the fact that I am making the work at a distance from the original experience, in this case the centre of Paphos in Cyprus whilst referencing the rural landscape of Iceland.
