Barefoot came out of a performance expedition to Albufera, Valencia, Spain. The 2 day expedition was punctured by a series of quick interventions, enacted out along the arid coastline. The work Barefoot was conceived after researching the mark-making techniques adopted by some of the artists working in the conceptually heavy period of the 1960's/70's. 
After walking (barefoot) along a stretch of gravel road for 1 mile; the 'hitchers' or foot detritus were carefully collected and bagged.
