Memory Walks

This project was exhibited as part of the Tokyo Spidering group exhibition at HAGISO.  For Memory Walks (The World Is Not Flat), each eggshell drawing represents a walk that I took during the month of September 2013.  For example, going from my apartment to the train station, or going from the train station to the bus stop, or going from work to the supermarket.  Each string of eggshells represents one day of walks going from September 1 to September 30.

The location of each egg is the approximate time in which I took that particular walk with time going from top to bottom (9 am to 1 am).  I make the drawings the day after the walks in order to see and experience how my memory reconstructs these walks and perceives time and space as compared to the actual walks and maps.
