oilstick on paper notecards
The Network drawings are mappings of an intuitive passage from one self-created place to another, the formation of relationships out of nothing. They are intentionally structural and non-specific—they may refer to any type of location or relation, whether geographic, temporal, mechanical, neural, or emotional. The process begins with a mark on a notecard. In order to travel from that location, notecards are added to form a ground for a line. Once further locations are discovered, they can be expanded, characterized, with new paths forged between them and old connections expunged.
