In The Lure of the Local, author Lucy Lippard refers to the act of walking in nature describing it as, “an unparalleled way to open oneself to the spirit of place and to its subterranean history. Motion allows for a certain mental freedom to translate to a place to a person kinesthetically.” This kinesthetic relationship to place — literally feeling the land — has been the inspiration for this series of drawings. The lines on each page convey the point of interstice between the land and my body. As I moved along a rocky shoreline, an uneven forest floor or a snowy path in the mountains, I drew a line back-and-forth across the page, effectively recording the movement of my body as it traversed and responded to the terrain. The drawings themselves can be interpreted as seismographs or cardiograms; measurements of the rhythm between body and land.
