Traverse Me is a map drawn by walking across campus with a GPS device to invite the viewer to see a different landscape to that which surrounds them.
It questions the possibilities of where they are and inspires a personal reading of their movements and explorations of the campus.

I responded to the structure of each location and avoided walking along roads and paths when possible.
The route was recorded with GPS technology and was walked in stages over the 300 hectare site.

My shoes turned brown in the dry fields and they turned green in the long grass.
The compass rose and the globe were paced out over cricket pitches, and the scale was measured along a narrow tractor rut.

I collided with objects and buildings, barriers and footpaths, and traipsed over the tops of multi-story car parks.
Security was called on me twice on separate occasions and I lost count of how many times I happened to trigger an automatic sliding door.
