About the Drawings

How to explain these drawings? Begin by looking. Ask yourself what you see. The drawings should explain themselves. But just in case: these are drawings of events in baseball games, though you don’t need to know much, if anything, about baseball. The drawings are estimates of the space and time of events in baseball games. No complicated measuring tools were used, just some pencils, paper, and a ruler. Initially my work focused on plotting the location of pitches within the strike zone over long periods of time --an entire game consisting of hundreds of pitches. Gradually the work has become a more detailed examination of shorter time periods in a game, ranging from whole innings to individual at bats.

My work has always been concerned with mapping, documenting and explaining what, where and when things happen, and how individual events are connected.
