Looking for Patterns and Inspiration in Public Spaces:

In this drawing series the two ink silhouettes resemble the forms found in public spaces; Piazza di San Pietro in Rome and Potsdamer Platz in Berlin (above). Each composition was dictated through a sense of navigation and movement. In Berlin, a transition of East to West and the reverse. In Rome, a radial navigation leading towards the center.

Platz
20 x 20cm, pen and ink.

Piazza

The “Id” Collaborative Drawing Process:

Id (noun) the part of the mind in which innate instinctive impulses and primary processes are manifest.

Starting with a blank sheet of paper the drawing incorporates an equal proportion of space from four artists. In this exercise a 20cm square sheet was divided using a pencil grid representing two different public squares. The plan-view of each public space dictated the boundaries we were allowed to draw within. The filling process was repeated in cycles as we continuously developed our image of each drawing, playing off of other's conversations out loud and on paper.
