Movement in the City
After having sketched some observations at Cooper Square, I noticed that there are many layers of movement that are constantly weaving and intersecting with each other, while in flux. Traffic moves in more than one direction; people both follow flows and divert from them. Furthermore, these flows are regulated by disruptions otherwise known as traffic lights. In an effort to create prints that would be expressive of my observations, I chose to focus on these three words: intersect, divert, and disrupt. The etched actions on my plate are exaggerated versions of what I observed at Cooper Square.
