‘The video Hopscotch is a sort of visual essay; on the left of the black screen, in a Polaroid-like framed image, the scrawled figure of spiral, ladder and numbers on London pavements, while on the right a scrolling text describes the antiquity of hopscotch. Hopscotch aims to dissolve the divisions within aesthetics by relating the pavement chalkings with the artist’s drawing and the scientist’s diagram.’ – Guy Brett
