choreography curation DIY drawing enhancing the everyday

A spinning-top, that uses a pen as the spindle, represents many of the core ideas behind my current work. It is recognisable, un-intimidating, and invites people to interact with objects that can lead to unpredictable results, or an emergent property. Simply through indulging in the enjoyable process of spinning the top a bi-product is created. Where the pen marks the surface, a beautiful map of the experience and events that have occurred is produced. I am able to draw, but I am not particularly talented at it and yet found that, through the interaction with these objects, I have created drawings that I am more proud of than any I have done before.
Why not have a go…

Doors was an enormous 10-story public art installation made from 1,000 reused doors by South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa. From what I can tell it appears the piece was installed somewhere in Seoul in 2009. Choi discusses his process over on the Creators Project where he talks about becoming a public installation artist because he was unable to draw or paint, but would instead spend much of his time walking around the city discovering interesting trash and discarded objects and photographing it.

19:30 Stacks is a new series of sculptures by Aleksandra Domanović. They’re actually stacks of A4 and A3 paper with parts of photos printed on their side. To create this effect, Aleksandra made huge PDF files which she printed with an inkjet printer set to “border-less printing”. You can actually print one yourself: download this 5555 A4 pages PDF, print it out, place 1500 empty pages on top and 1500 at the bottom of the printed stack. Voila, you have one of the stacks.
