Handmade collagraph print. Mount Size 50x40cm. Framed in wood / glass frame. No 1 in edition of 5. 

This unique handmade print is inspired by the experience of walking. The work includes several ideas and areas of interest that frequently recur in my work, for example – the experience of walking, the variations encountered in our daily lives, recording experience in data, observing patterns in nature and in the built environment, and the exploration of colour and pattern in handmade printmaking. 

The overall composition is based on a visualisation of GPS data (specifically altitude data) collected while walking. Each shape in the print is inspired by the natural features along the River Swale and the man-made features of Richmond town centre. 

Each shape represents one altitude data point selected at regular intervals from the whole GPS data set. The data is grouped into 5 bands.

The more organic curved shapes represent the lower altitude section of the walk, along the river. The shapes are based on natural forms observed during this section of the walk.        

The geometric shapes represent the higher sections of the walk, through the town centre. The shapes are inspired by the geometric shapes and patterns in the architecture of the town centre.

The shapes with gradients or diagonals represent altitude data in between the lowest and highest bands, i.e. walking down to the river or up to the town.

The tiles have been randomly sequenced to create a balanced composition.
