Through the process of taking an impression of a tarmac pavement in the manner of a brass rubbing, the soft graphite became scoured and indented with marks, transferred through the tracing paper.
In our busy, self-absorbed life, going to and fro on a beaten path, we become rhythmically numbed to the passing of time and the knocks and bruises along the way. The cracks in the pavement which have left cut marks embedded in the graphite become representative of the lines and scars on our bodies, thus depicting time taking its toll on us.
