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.

|Steps of Recursion – Tuned
In this sculpture, a digital print is connected to a steer rail somewhat inspired by those found in airports and subway stations. Functional, stainless-steel street furniture supports a safe and smooth transit. In the digital print we see the reflection of one sneaker becoming the next but same sneaker, bent into shape of small steps which smoothly wiggle from A to B.
