In Pocket Walks I have tried to synthesize my interest in the history of Los Angeles and psychogeography by walking the landscape that, with few exceptions, resists Guy Debord's dérives completely. I wondered what it could mean to walk in this city, and how one's relationship to a place changes when it is experienced contrary to design. Each piece for Pocket Walks is made up of four parts: a found text that was letterpress printed, a thirty-five millimeter photograph that was chosen from a roll of film taken on the walk, a map of the route hand traced from a Google Earth map, and an etching. This last component was created by leaving a soft-ground coated zinc plate in my pocket throughout the walk, to register the motion of my strides through wear on the plate, with the resulting marks being etched and printed.
