Historicity : Writing On The Wall
History reveals itself in the details, while historicity is informed by the transformative relationship between past and present — explored here through the compulsive archiving of transnational terrain. Cracks, litter and etched lovers names emerge as inscriptions and visual articulations of a past and present temporally estranged, yet spatially embedded. This system of signs lends to a new form of ethnographic mapping. Formulaically framed, this documentation provides a visual field study of how humans reshape the natural topography of disparate times and places — reflecting both an undifferentiated globalized world, and one of cultural polities and realities.
