Artist Statement: Gorgeous Filth #01

Gorgeous Filth #01 is an exploration of urban forms and our experience with the material of cities. Each interaction, point of surface contact or scuff, whether by design or by circumstance, is at once something removed, something revealed, and something left behind. 

Her use of maps speaks to a sense of place, but it is at the same time indistinct, a kind of universal geography, the design of space within pre-existing space, and how our interactions – organic and emotional and spontaneous – collapse and become aggregate, integrated into pre-established patterns of traffic, structure, and flow.
