The Floor We Walk On (a drawing of our entire house) comprises approximately 1200 rubbings of the entire floor-space of the house my partner and I own in Auckland. In 2009 we made an emotional and financial commitment of buying a home together, and when we moved to Wellington the rubbings became a way of at once taking leave of the house and taking something of the house with us. The rubbings from each room were put back together, like a 1:1 map, and then folded into their own set of covers. This has become a starting point for a larger body of works titled An Open Love Letter.
This work won the 2015 Parkin Drawing Prize and is now part of the Parkin Collection.
