Found In Translation (November 2018, Zurich University of the Arts)

It starts with a scribble. . .


In this case, the part of one of my two year old's drawings that I found the most interesting; the upper left corner (see below). This and other scribbles served as a starting point for me to explore more deeply the language of line and how it can be used as a form of expression, beyond making visible marks on paper.

In the previous post, you can see some of the drawings that were a result of recording the dancer in motion
