For centuries sidewalks have connected society, serving as small capillary veins of an urban body that cut lattice-like patterns under the skin of civilization. Though their primary purpose is connection, they are overlooked pathways that direct movement and serve as identity markers for different neighborhoods of a city. 

I traveled to four distinct locations around Chattanooga and documented general observations about each residential street; I noted each location’s unique characteristics, observed the condition of the sidewalks, and researched the average cost of homes and median income. In each location, I took two chalk impression tracings of sidewalks with interesting features that I found to be either unique to that space or reoccurring along that specific sidewalk system.
