Movement Lines

This series of work is from my final degree project. The work explores the relationship between line and movement asking us to question he we experience and document movement. My drawings in space are formed of notation lifted off the flat page. Although appearing instructional the work subverts the idea of notation by removing its practical purpose. It asks the viewer to question the reliability of the information presented, whilst highlighting the limits of documentation to communicate movement. The viewer is led around the space by the notation; unwittingly becoming the performer as the presence of written instructions or obstacles encourages a physical response.
