Heather L. Johnson grew up moving from place to place, with dramatic cultural transitions defining each move. This process, along with an entrenched fondness for long road trips, has inspired her ongoing investigation of rootlessness, of moving through space without connecting to it. Drawing on source material such as maps, engineering schematics, official documents, newspaper articles, internet ephemera, and the personal stories of friends and strangers, she employs a range of media to render richly layered images of things often forgotten or taken for granted.
