About the project
"The experiment is a simple one. Attempt the impossible task of drawing without thinking about it. The techniques used are classical drawing with a black felt tip pen and hand-crafting of screenprints – both on paper. I listen to online talks, audio tracks of documentaries and music to keep my mind distracted. Small black lines slowly compile into depictions of possible new beginnings – embryos of new worlds. An organic process of becoming that mimes nature’s own production of the physical, where uniform units come together and complexity emerges."
