EXHIBITIONS

M16 Drawing Prize, 2016 WINNER

These drawings explore scale and time through a singular output of pen to paper using a small plotter.

The larger images, based on Japanese karesansui rock gardens, are 3-dimensional scans of inflatable rocks constructed while on a residency in Japan. These are 1:1 scale. The two large drawings, comprised of 35 panels, are made up of 1,513,159 lines, taking 11 days, 13 hours, 23 minutes and 31 seconds for the pen to travel 7.34 km path.
