drawn by the touch of others
72 - 14 x 17 pages
each buffed with powdered graphite for 1 hour (30 minutes each side), folded and stacked. (as seen here)
in an effort to shift the locus of the drawing from the page to the hand, attempting to make an intimate work where the drawing is a record of touch, recorded through the transfer of graphite residue to the gloved hands of the participants.
18 participants are given white cotton gloves and are allowed to touch, handle and engage the pages in any way they desire with the instruction that they are to return the pages to the stack and pile the gloves on the floor when they are done.
The resulting drawing is made on the gloves and is a record of the participants’ touch
The stacked pages are bundled (as they were left) with cotton twine
