Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Trace: Your Land Is My Land Is Our Land
by Boyson, Marc, M.F.A., The University of the Arts, 2013, 29; 1553815
Abstract (Summary)

I think about the space between places. I search for ways to record the invisible, ephemeral act of movement. Through the use of complex and simply technologies I collect habitual movements that I carry out over the course of months and years. These banal movements of the commute are logged through the use of Global Positioning Systems, through intuitive drawings, video, sound, text, and performance. I gather this data and think about how to repurpose them from their original intent to create a new psychogeographic map. These maps are temporal, site-specific works created over days that reinterpret my real, intuitive, and memory traces to create the fiction of place. I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Visual Art & Design at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale and participated in a group show FRESH 2013 Emerging Artist Exhibit at the Association of Visual Arts in Chattanooga, TN.
