While my residency at Epicenter Projects in California I was challenging myself to use the desert and canyons in the San Andreas Fault area as my drawing surface. Laser technology is used there for land survey and earthquake detection, so I found its artistic appropriation decisive. Because some of the performative laser drawing were kilometres in scale, I used long-time exposure photography to capture them in full detail. My own reaction to the different topologies and the resulting gestures put my drawing for the first time into their own group of works.
