Line of thought is an ongoing project investigating the use of drawing as a means of extracting thought.
On this occasion I created a drawing using string which I attached to a deteriorated brick wall by utilising pre-existing screws and nails in the wall. My use of string constructs a conversation between the wall and its surrounding structures supported by scaffolding. Everything remains held together by thought.
Both a metaphorical and physical line of enquiry is constructed with the attachment of string extrapolating drawing from a 2D entity into a 3D form. The drawing breathes on the borders of a forgotten extension, existing on the edge of a car park in Ipswich temporarily. The ephemeral nature of the drawing highlights the transient nature of passing thoughts.
This drawing was constructed on the 10th April 2014 as a collaboration with my friend and illustrator Hannah Farthing - see below for documentation in the form of photographs, drawings and some short films.
