About the Artwork

Ruth, Myth & Science

These lines were captured with a hand-held GPS over a month. They represent simple daily activities, driving to work, shopping, visiting friends, walking around the neighborhood or riding a bike around the park. Although invisible, my body is an agent of these drawings. The patterns emerging anchor my memory and trace narratives with simple lines. I am interested in various technologies with complex and gendered histories and in blurring lines between global perspectives and domestic spaces. The layers represent a wider mental space facilitated by virtual technologies. They allow me to move in time and space to create links between, art, textiles, myth, technology, women and trade.
