Three participants came today and the time flew by. I did three drawings of Jane Chapman doing yoga and then asked if she would like to try drawing herself. Jane was able to draw into the video of herself doing yoga. You could also see the projection drawing I had been doing and her hand drawing was overlaid. It was like watching a simultaneous duet and trio.
Annie Suganami played piano, flute and sang and I drew between her movements and the sounds. I become very aware of my decision making process of drawing using the video projection technique process , which helps to focus my mark making.
Lynne Denman arrived and sang duets with Annie, then sang the Selkie song she had composed for me solo. I projected video footage of the sea over her as she sang.
Visitors came and went as we worked. The entrance to the Demonstration space is quite narrow and I hope this doesn’t put people off from entering the space.
Although the gift exchange entails that the a drawing is gifted to the performers, all three offered for their choice of drawing to remain in the show until I have an opportunity to document them. So for the moment they are up on the wall and if you visit the show on Wednesday or Friday this week, you will have the chance to view them.
