During my residency at Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark in Birmingham, AL, a new building was under construction. When the earth was moved for the establishment of the new foundation, countless artifacts were unearthed. In the dirt and rust I found bits of corroded steel cable which I collected and stored in my studio. Once my collection had grown, I began to order these strands as drawings on panels. These maps were composed through a meditative process outside of the foundry. I consider them maps to my subconscious.
"Thus we cover the universe with drawings we have lived. These drawings need not be exact. They need only to be tonalized on the mode of our inner space." Guy Bachelard
