Paths of Resistance is a site-specific installation which speaks directly to the imperceptible energies, which inform our human experiences. Continuing from my wider project Porosity, this installation considers energies lying hidden, the invisible shaping the visible.

20 meters of screenprinted fabric map the invisible magnetic fields present within Arnolfini and surrounding area, transforming the invisible into physical reality. Moving across the wall as a series of connected lines, the prints visualise electromagnetic fields and vibrations, rhythms and waves weaving and colliding in a state of flux.

Implicitly this installation connects the permeability of our everyday urban landscape with the porousness of the human body. This points to a give-and-take relationship between person and place, an inevitable interchange of molecules and energies, each leaving an impression on the other.
