On a recent trip to Costa Rica, I developed a piece titled "Recollecting Time" in which I was thinking about the time spent traveling alone. I photographed street pavers on the sidewalks of San Jose and traced out the paths taken by myself and students. There is an animation of the paver photographs paired with field recordings of myself traveling through the streets. The photographs are then turned into repeat fabric prints which are then quilted and embroidered with contour drawings of the map tracings. These techniques represent different ways of presenting time at varying speeds of animation and stitching, the speed of the hand and the speed of the machine.
