Sound drawings
2017 - ongoing

In sound drawings I listen to a particular sound with headphones and simultaneously draw while listening.

I try to disable my mind from making decisions and only react to what I hear.

 

Rules and methods

Make your body an instrument,

Draw the music with repetitive gestures and marks on the surface.

Only act when the sound is acting.

Concentrate on the sound and move accordingly.

Use both hands.
