every highway 2 (2021)

every highway is based in the past as much as it is the present, a topographical sculpture and a pictorial diary of my past, protruding out of the wall, hung on aluminum map pins. Official state highway maps, stripped down to just the interstates and state routes that I’ve driven on throughout my life, create a body-like structure, its highways acting as veins. In exploring the creation of a new space within the milieu of the old, I’m encouraging the viewer to conjure new contexts and new memories as they exist as maps, reassessing and reordering their own memories. I adopt a methodology of letting the practice inherently inform the final form throughout the deveining and installation of every highway, ultimately allowing for a liminal process of discovery to take place.
