Search & Rescue is a series of works that investigates how firefighters move and communicate in and through an unknown space. I used a GPS App to trace my movements while conducting a search and rescue inside a house fire. The trace was rendered into a series of drawings and combined with sound to capture what couldn’t be seen: the energy of the fire.
