Each site-specific work within the “Flow Chart” series is simultaneously an environment to be navigated physically and a cartographical map to be interpreted from a distance. Fluctuating pathways, points, and color fields sprawl in all directions, propelling the viewer along an immersive journey of varied rhythm, scale, and space within the gallery. The movements of the viewer and the “Flow Chart” navigate the gallery together, divergent and intersecting in nature.
