One Track Navigator (Slade, London 2004) -

Orientation in urban environment is a key issue in this work. Definitions of spaces and voids brought to their basic structural features play the main role. These are basic terms in which urban navigation takes place. Dictating navigation of finite route possibilities for consideration in a given space.Raising the subject of orientation in a fictional, invented space obtaining existing Bauhaus buildings from Tel Aviv, International style and sky scrapers photographed in Chicago , and high raised council housing projects from London . All these characteristic of places but also are aliens to their locations. These were done in different periods of the modern and contemporary times with best intentions yet epitomize the fact that buildings easily lend themselves as symbols of ideals not only markers in time. The sense of time is eliminated by the blackness surrounding the lighted areas being both a reference of time (darkness therefore night) and place (gaps between buildings therefore roads, as well as ‘walls’). These are ghostly images that are in practice voids.The fictional and the factual take also part in the physical sense of movement in a given space, in this case the orbit of the camera. Central is the reference to glimpses of vantage points, manipulating perspectives that are crucial to any attempt to establish three-dimensional space in two dimension’s western convention. The primal sense is of circular movement, synchronizing time and space. The actual change in appearance of the buildings betray a shift in vantage point, hence lack of synchronization in practice. This lack identifies the given track being a spiral, circulating in ever growing distances from buildings already seen. Therefore obtaining a potential of infinity.
