I Didn't See the Sign

Walk, Drawing & Video

A series of walks I made during a residency in L.A. based on the 1993 film ‘Falling Down’, visiting locations from key scenes in the film to discuss with local residents how each area had changed over the 20 years following its release. The plot of the original film follows the main character, an unemployed military engineer having a break-down who walks from one end of L.A. to the other. I used the walks as a way to articulate the trembling of fiction and reality within the landscape of L.A. The final work culminated into a series of drawings mapping the walks and the creation of three walks that are available through the LACA Archive.
