Jade Cantwell / Marking the Way / September 05 – 22 2012

Marking the Way searches for the signs, symbols and remnants of human activity that delineate the passage of time and stories which occupy our surroundings. Worn grass paths, rock markers, codes in architectural lines and tree bark textures form a visual narrative of our daily existence.

I have always had a strong interest in the visual code of our daily lives – how we place or remove meaning from the seemingly mundane. It keeps me engaged with my surroundings, finding clues in the shadows of previous passers by and exploring a sense of place, both foreign and familiar.

Jade Cantwell graduated from the University of Technology Sydney with a combined degree in Media Arts and International Studies. She was a finalist in the 2012 Moran Photo Prize and 2010 NSW Parliamentary Photo Prize.
