trans-scapes 1,2 can simultaneously be viewed as map, narrative, schematic of architectural space or the micro movement of neural firings. Observations of walking experience along pilgrimage circuits and paths in Japan during a 2011 Creative Artist Exchange strengthened my affinity to the relationships of movement within contemplative settings. Evident in these long drawings is the requirement of walking and close inspections on the part of the viewer. My research further informed subsequent full scale immersive installations with expanded passages.
