commute, from an ongoing series, my landscape project, was installed in the window at the Akira flagship store in Gertrude Street, Fitzroy as part of Yarra Councils creative initiative ‘Art this Way’ in 2014. The hand-kitted installation mapped the two tram routes between my home and Akira, where I was employed part time. It tracked my regular trip through the urban environment from Brunswick to Fitzroy, each street hand knitted, each tram stop marked by a strand of cotton yarn that was pulled taut and spanned into the space of the window, transforming two dimensions into three dimension. I was interested in analyzing progress and movement in an effort to survey both repetition and macro and micro dimensions.
