'Impressions of the Everyday Space'
In this work I explore themes of order and chaos, of repetition in the city and freedom of the individuals who live within it. The city is shaped by humanity. By many people treading the same path over and over again, until eventually we built roads and structures to accommodate them. To keep us civilised. The city attempts to implement order with walls and fences. Repetition is everywhere. Whether it is in the routine of our daily lives or the consumerist ideology imposed on us by mass production. Yet, within the constraints of the city streets the walker is free to roam wherever they like. The images here are impressions created by a multitude of human activity day in and day out. Be it the orderly and confined direction of cars on the road, or the more chaotic patterns made by pedestrians. The city is a micro-universe that mirrors the wider cosmos. There is a system at work and certain rules in play that exist to order and control. But there is also disorder. There are random movements that cannot be governed by any kind of power. Our activities take place in a system of streets, but there are many possibilities within them. This project seeks to remind us that we are part of a universe, but our individuality is not defined by it.
