Biographical Information
Don Gill ~ [20th century] Canadian
A conceptually-based photographer and artist, Don Gill is in the Tenth year of an unbroken walking project: Erratic Drawings: dongillwalking, consisting of daily mapped walks. These ongoing maps can be seen at: dongillwalking.blogspot.com
This work is a product of his Erratic Space project (or more properly; methodology) of looking at place through the lens of immediate connection of the surroundings. This methodology has seen the production of hundreds discreet works, in a variety of media and formats.
"Erratic Space" represents mapped space as unmapped and unknown; the direction of movement regulated by processes other than knowledge of specific routes. By losing the map and getting lost, situations are created in which the direction of movement is regulated by physical, intellectual, or emotional constraints; moving in search of what you need or want, rather than by regulated routes. Vision, hearing, smell, physical sensation, emotion, recognition etc. become predominant as tools for route-finding. A realization that nothing is familiar and recognizable instigates a full immersion in your immediate environment, your senses becoming fully attuned across all perceptual possibilities.
