Street-based artwork, Pavement Astronomer (in which bits of chewing gum left on the street are joined up by lines of chalk to make constellations) begins from the activity of looking for meaning in the outcome of processes that shape the everyday environment. A simple intervention by the artist turns a usually invisible part of urban human geography into a theatre of wonder and belief.
Pavement Astronomer is about finding beauty and hope in the quotidian and building meaning from the results of discarded actions. It also asks questions about the permanence or temporary nature of public art.
