This Interactive Drawing installation was made and shown for Kenji Fujita’s Spring 2016 Drawing III class at Bard College.
The body of work references the idea of “Somewhere” and points to an implied absence.
People are asked to participate, to “Depict a part of somewhere!”
Their depiction will appear as thick black ink, but will gradually vanish in just a few minutes.
A durational video of a moving thread drawing, and a house forming plays on repeat.
A digitized version will be posted soon.
“The landscape we experience when we travel is becoming increasingly homogenized. I can drive all the way from Long Island to Oregon and be surrounded by the same visual icons and consumer havens. Public space has been overwhelmingly privatized by a relatively small amount of conforming, anti-creative, empirically driven, ultra powerful capitalist corporations.”
