The qualities of our journeys are as subtle as the strokes of a pencil.
Our travels are textured as we squiggle on foot, dither at junctions, speed along motorways, and fly through air corridors.
For fifteen years I've record all my journeys with GPS to map where I have been and how I got there.
It is a form of personal cartography that documents my life as visual journal.

Our journeys are shaped by the rules of the landscape.
We route along engineered solutions as defined by paths and boundaries that tweak and tamper with our travels.
At a time when it's getting harder to expience the feeling of being lost perhaps we should try and stray away from recommended routes.
