“The sublime experience is fundamentally transformative, about the relationship between disorder and order and the disruption of the stable coordinates of time and space.”
– Simon Morley, The Contemporary Sublime
I use drawing as a means of interrogating dominant modes of visualization – maps, diagrams, illustrations, and models – and locating the uncertainties and discrepancies inherent within them. The map is a document and archive of human presence, movement, and engagement with the visible world. I’m searching for the inherent subjectivity of these documents, and the disruptions in the “stable coordinates of time and space” that render them imperfect. I’m interested in the sites where attempts to transfix dynamic phenomena fail – the holes in the model, the blank space on the map – where sublimity leaks through.
