These works to date comprise a series of plan drawings using white chalk, which manifest, delineate or invent boundaries stemming from different forms of technological signals. I think of these as poetic actions, that resonate against on coming and developing ideas, in and around locative media, mobile computing and the future of our cities.

These temporary drawn manifestations of invisible electronic signals create navigation, boundaries, and in turn new territories, building layers of points and planes which are unmistakably architectural and stem from their urban setting. Using the satellite network, exact positions and times are plotted by drawing directly onto the ground, fixing elements in the urban environment, making this both the subject of, and the surface of the work.
