Many thanks to those who sent me their drawings.
Above are some digital transmutations from Slow Circle line drawings collected from my onliner peers.
I devised Slow Circle as a way of looking at new poetic possibility within the simple element of line. In Slow Circle, line is generated from zero at a single point of origin. The line is continuously generated “feeling” its way ahead along a predetermined course. It moves towards its inevitable conclusion, where it began. No two circles can ever be exactly the same, each an individual.
How might something so fundamental as generating a single line from zero by hand with no tools other than a pencil and single sheet of paper be a stimulus for new thinking ab origine “from the beginning”.
What relevance might this have in our world now saturated with already-highly-complex imagery?
