Laying a trail v. connecting points

November 3, 2013 by Gabrielle Hoad   Comments (0)

Drawing freehand with pencil on paper is clearly different to creating digital drawings from data in many ways, but what most interests me is the contrast that Tim Ingold describes in relation to line-making between 'the trace of a gesture' and 'an assembly of point-to-point connectors' (2007: 74-75). I've taken the opportunity to attend the college's life class to re-explore representational drawing with this contrast in mind.

I have joined the AA2A scheme to fufil a new project, to make an animated film adapted from an illustrated story by Nathan Baxter (a fellow AA2A artist in Lincoln). As the story goes, a Cosmonaut is plummets to Earth following a failed attempt to make contact with singing stars. His survival is tested by the blistering weather conditions on the barren Earth he has returned to. Does anyone on Earth know what is going on?

Follow all the posts and pictures as the project rolls on here!

Welcome exhibition

Today I have started installing an interactive 'pop-up balaclava' opportunity at the Royal William Yard with the AA2A artists of University of Plymouth. 

Today's installation is a small welcoming exhibition to introduce ourselves and our work to the Fine Art students based at the yard. Although I am hoping my installation will allow me to connect with the students, I am also hoping it will allow them to connect with each other...

I have left instructions asking wearers to send me photos of their interactions, so watch this space as I will upload any images I receive in a new album here and on my website. I'm looking forward to checking my inbox at the end of the week...
