The sculpted totem poles ‘Trails Rising’ are made from a mixture of sand and an epoxy clay which has been marked by the tread of various sneakers. The imprints forged by ergonomic footwear, designed to augment the body, remain as traces forming future terrains. In their profusion the individual prints join and become a pattern across a mutable landscape – as if a multitude of solitary runners meet one another in a collective space, traversing the poles in a direct attempt at transcendence. One reference might be Brancusi’s monumental Infinite Column, built as a WW1 memorial for those who died defending the Romanian city of Targu-Jiu, was created as a means of symbolic ascension to heaven. Through these similar gestures we are presented with a different process based interpretation, opposing Brancussi’s essentialist notion of what enhanced realities could be.

For some time I have gathered computer generated information about the far future online. While many of the events assigned to these random dates will probably not take place, some other predictions for example by NASA are more likely to take place.
