”My intention was not to work metaphorically, or to illustrate, but paradoxically to set myself a task using parameters which seemed potentially limitless: time and space. I wanted to make a map, a visual belief structure that was a way forward for me…in the hope that something which was non visual could become visual, something potentially meaningless would become meaningful.”          Roger Ackling.  2012
