This piece interrogates the extraordinary immediacy and transformative process of mark making. Subverting the boundary between the zeitgeist of our times (banality and decay) and that of neo modernism. It should not be interpreted as a picture of dog wee, but a reaction against dog wee. The dog wee is of course a metaphor for territorial individuality, but also opens a space in which to explore other metaphors of state change (liquid to solid), viewpoint and sensuality (visual versus olfactory). Taking the piece altogether it extracts meaning through the interface of contemporary photographic practice and drawing (mark making) to invite us to raise our eyes from the ground and look to the skies.
