2012 MFA thesis exhibition at Ernest G Welch Gallery
Pedestrian is inspired by my daily walking routines and my relationship to the spaces in which I walk. Through additional instruction-guided walks with volunteers, this project examines the seemingly mundane travels of walkers and their relationship to and absorption of the space around them, and encourages a reconsideration of the environmental everyday into a venue for play and discovery. In this work, 15 participants were given the same list of instructions in which to explore Decatur, GA. Inspired by the remappings of the Situationists in 1960s Paris as well as relational artists, I created a new map of the city and then erected a physical rendering of this map in the gallery space.
