Permanent Marker on Paper, 2013
The repetition of my body movement and its interaction with the material is the work of art. For this work I used a single pen to count continuously from 1. The fill level of the pen is transferred to the 200 x 150 cm paper. Every break is visible. Each digit and each line can be seen as independent. At the same time, the accumulation of numbers forms a larger single number and the accumulation of lines form an area, and assume a distinct new shape.
My drawings do not depict the visible nor do they create an illusion.
They make visible the process itself – the repetition of a movement.
A movement that expresses a mental state is repeated and translated into a line.
