THERE NOT THERE
The idea for this series formed when considering that some people avoid stepping on cracks in soil or sidewalks. The practice purportedly dates to some of the earliest folk beliefs that these cracks signaled gaps in the boundaries between the earthly and metaphysical realms. I began thinking of the lines in sidewalks as representing barriers which divide up 3-dimensional space. This led to pondering urban areas in general. Straight lines intersect everywhere, creating matrix patterns in two dimensions. Extrapolating matrix patterns into a third dimension reveals how spaces could be redefined. The dynamics of industrial and architectural design go beyond the physical, suggesting linear divisions that are not really there.
