My work is continuing to develop and I wanted to start thinking about how I could develop it into a final show piece. I started to think about a few ideas one of which was to include a video of myself producing a large scale drawing. I wanted to do this as a way to show a hand drawing a hand. Then movements I make through producing the drawing and how my body reacts and response to my progress through the drawing.
I want to show to the audience the physical and mental strength needed for this sort of work. I am experimenting with drawings of my own hands at the moment because I feel hands tell a lot about a person. The gestures through a person’s hands and body language tells a lot about an individual’s mood. I am also producing drawings of a friend looking at the way she can distort her body to show her ribs and bones. These distortions come from her insecurities and eating disorders. That connection between the mind and body is so important as the body is the physical communicator for the mind.
I decided to experiment with film. Here I have experimented with a time lapse of a drawing to show the essence of the drawing process rather than display a long film of my time and production. Using a time lapse is interesting because not only does it allow me to see the way I work from a far but, also makes it a great way to show to the audience how I produce my work. For this piece, I used iMovie to edit the film.
