Abstract
CONVERGENCE OF PATHS

Within the vast urban fabrics live many threads of paths. These paths weave in, out, diagonal, above and underground forming city blocks that we well know. Events happen when these paths interact. They either weave into each other or separate into many. Sometimes a force or desire within the urban layout is so strong that cuts through the threads and weaves a new path that needs to be discovered. The thorn threads become the manifesto of the desire and the spectacle of event. A place is created.

When a singular path reaches a point of convergence with another path, their energy merge and transforms into a moment. There is a desire of purposely converge and communicate these paths into unexpected spatial encounters. At the point of convergence, strangers paths merge into each other blending all together into a spider wed of logical confusion, they briefly loose orientation, change form and ultimately experience an event in common.
