Vehicle drawing with seven lines
Van, paper, seven drawing devices (wood, wheels, pen cartridges)
Drawing is a representation of process movement and energy. Journey, the space between departure and arrival, has its own momentum which can be transcribed, recording not only the distance and duration of that travel, but also formalising the incidental movement as line.
Appendix (Seven) works as an active element to my MFA final submission; Posted drawing box made to dimensions of Bay C 1:100, and shows a method of recording journey as line alongside a more spatial rendition of the process.
On the 22nd of January, seven drawing devices will be introduced to a van and the vehicle will follow a route, tracing the path from my studio to the site of the MFA exhibition. Its arrival at this destination coincides with the opening night, and during this time the work will remain in the car park beside the entrance. At the conclusion of the open night the van will be driven to its finishing point at the site of the ’and (&) per se and’ exhibition where it will remain for the duration of the two shows.
This work is a linkage between the sites as well as a visual explanation, an ‘and’ or addition to a work which uses the same basic principal as its starting point; drawing as a device to capture and consider movement, energy and the incidental.
