Temporal canvas

Drawing with friends ~ 2018

One of the first times I felt free as an artist was when I drew with my eyes closed. Temporal canvas is an activity to share that with others.

I'll often carry around a small notebook with me, in part to draw whenever the moment warrants. I'll usually conduct the drawing activity in this format:

  1. Artist chooses the first letter of a word
  2. Observer chooses the second letter
  3. Both brainstorm possible words that start with that prefix
  4. Artist chooses one word as prompt and draws with eyes closed

The artist can take however long they want to draw. It’s exciting to see others take on the ambiguity and be pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Here’s a couple of drawings from myself and friends over the past year

That's all for now, more to come!
