'Journey Home 3 & 4'

These pieces record my journey home from a specific point through an area where I spent time exploring the area fully.

They are shown on the map of the area which has been rust-printed onto the paper. On the map the route was burnt into, I have also marked places where I have stopped to look at the view, or taken notice of something in the landscape. I did this by placing piles of gunpowder and burning them in a similar way to ‘Journey Home (1&2)’.

The addition of map backgrounds in these pieces ground them in a specific place, a landscape of fields, tracks and roads. They show where my walking route was open to my whim or confined to a footpath. They make the work more clearly about a walked journey as exploration of a place.
