For many years my artwork has used urban space as the base from which to probe broad questions concerning history, memory, and experience. My work is an exploration of the ways different modes of documentation, and then material and visual translations, of this initial "data" can be positioned on varying conceptual and visual trajectories in relation to a corporal experience. My goal is to push down underneath the appearance of the visual environment in order to articulate something more basic about the mental and physical rhythm of moving though space and, more specifically, the experience of particularly salient locations in the urban environment.  - Paul Fabozzi
