Regardless of the number of times you make a move, each time is the first, every copy an original. Nor can you ever be sure how it will turn out … it is impossible to go back and correct.
Repeatedly following the same track, moving through the Hebridean landscape provides a way of thinking creatively about concepts of time and temporal continuity. Repetitive, ephemeral tracings are created by the movement of walking and provide a memory of both a material journey and a temporal narrative. Patterns emerge as each track is walked on a regular basis, and a residue of the movement is found in GPS recordings, which are a reflection of clock-time, duration, date, place and distance travelled. Each drawing is unique and subtly different from all the others, although there is a certain lunarity to them, which adds a further dimension for contemplation.The movement drawings are mounted at an angle, encouraging the viewer to walk along a continuum which reflects movement across both time and space.
