The lines are drawn...
Installation at Articulate Project Space Leichhardt
Adhesive tape, nylon string.
6.5 x 3 x 3 metres (variable)
In this work I want to explore the visual excitement stimulated by the interaction of sets of lines. I am interested in the relationship between two dimensional drawing juxtaposed with the three-dimensional drawing in space. The patterning of lines on the wall forms a kind of rhythmic bass visually interrupted by the lyrical flights of the lines forming the spatial drawing.
The musical references in the work I have been doing recently are hard to miss. I am fascinated by the way in which sounds form patterns with overlaying lines - the polyphonic harmonies of counterpoint and fugal forms in particular. To attempt a parallel to this in a three dimensional visual form is part of the project, as are the visual disturbances created by the juxtaposition of the sets of lines.
The work in its entirety can be seen as a line drawing in space.
