The series of drawings entitled Restaurant, Station, Street and Airport have evolved from a process of tracing groups of multiple projected slides taken in quick succession of four unknown individuals sighted in particular urban spaces. The built up structures of lines form layers of tracing, creating a way of slowing down these fleeting sightings. The process of drawing not only diagrammatically describes the physical space of the figures in the distinctive environments but, due to the inevitable subtle spatial distortions and the layering of each image, they evoke a particular psychological space. The drawings were made concurrently with the development of Closer (short film), (2001).
