I am Zen-mama. I observe. I let my son explore and discover. I am the artist. I take a picture with my phone and catch the moment.
I make a big print of it and fold it as maps are folded. I carry the map in my bag for a month or so. I exhibit it.
The Map, photography print (folded), 2016, photos: Peter Škrlep
The Map shows tracks left by a child’s bicycle, which rode again and again over a puddle. First by accident then intentionally drawing circles on the concrete. The wet will soon dry, the parent and the child will move on. Yet, the moment was noticed, observed and caught on a phone camera. The artist has printed the photograph on a large format and folded it as a map. She has carried it with her in her purse. Sometimes she has folded it out on the street or while sitting behind a desk, finding until then unnoticed details. She exhibits the “worn-out” map reminding us of space as perceived by Doreen Massey: "Space as a cut through the myriad stories in which we are all living at any one moment".
