Installation of hand Cut Tyvek and map pins

My perception of time and space was exercised and altered through memory in several long sittings during the creation of this map. During these sittings I literally cut my passageways through space and time from memory. I simply placed my knife at the starting point of a walk and visualized my movements as my tool traced my footsteps. What you see when looking at the piece is a fictional map of the five boroughs of New York City as they exist in my minds eye.
