A digital visual diary that documents the process that underpins my work along with the thoughts and ideas generated from engaging in these processes.

You Were Barely Here

While creating a new light drawing I started to think about the possibility of using this type of drawing as a stencil, as a way of investigating repetition, cycles, impermanence, dispersion and diffusion of breath. The following images are the result of the first experiment in using the original drawing as a stencil with white pigment powder to create an impermanent drawing...one that can disappear with a single breath.

The following three images show the drawing when it was taped to a wall. Watching the pigment falling off the page, gradually loosing the image, willing it to stay, but knowing it was futile. There are still a few sections of the drawing remaining 3 days later but most of it has blown away.
