Peripatetic series

Urban vegetation

Setting out on a journey without defined destination I walk across the city's back gardens and wastelands picking flowers. Moved by real and fictional wanderlust, each walk is a meditation on its sites, sights and the passage of time. During each walk a bouquet of flowers is composed and from each bouquet a scannogram made. At the fingertips of an organic and digital process, the scan is an index of a unique object and the flowers an indexical trace of the walk. A trace of the scanned object but also of the scanned landscape, the project echoes the situational derive and other practices engaging with wandering and urban space. By walking I can yet decide my moves and control my own rhythms, subverting power structures as well as the modernist and capitalist logic of space.
