'Lost Paths' is built from 49 vitreous enamelled steel panels laid out in a grid framework alluding to those on an OS map.
The Ramblers’ Association has identified a potential 49,000 miles of unrecorded historical rights of way in England and Wales that are not on the definitive Ordnance Survey map. These missing paths, many of which go back centuries, need to be claimed so they are not lost to future generations.
Each panel represents a specific path visited and researched by Coyne. Kiln-fired, the enamel is abraded back and refired many times, revealing lost marks, grid references, and cartographer’s symbols embedded within the pieces defining spaces and making narratives among the more empirical information.
