Clear examples of the distance commitment to a given task can take you, this series of drawings from Alexandra Davies, requires a slow reading. Contemplating each hatch mark, they all appear immediately meaningful and measured. Whether they are or not in no way lessens their role in the project or their impact - for once you’re here and looking closely, you’re already trapped, realigning the boundaries of her site internally, and wondering where you could take it, what you could do with all this information.
