The drawings printed in this book are part of a series begun while I was living in India. I decided to document my daily commute in abstract, linear drawings. Bumps and turns, starts and stops, the type of vehicle in which I was riding, all became co-creative forces, guiding the direction of my drawings. The documentations have expanded to include various modes of transport, traveling to locations all over the world. As a visual narrative, they ride the tension between transition and place. The lust, or desire, to both wander and be somewhere meet in that precise moment on the page. While each drawing can stand alone, the real power of these drawings is in their serial nature. As viewers hold the collection of traffic patterns in their hands, my hope is that they would begin to 'see' the rhythms of their own journeys, daily and otherwise.
