I'm continuing to experiment with making drawings in the environment in response to found objects or situations. I have been thinking about the concept of circumambulation the past few months, or walking around something as a form of worship. Previously, I have been drawing lines as a symbolic "walking," but today I walked.
"The grace of a curve is an invitation to remain. We cannot break away from it without hoping to return. For the beloved curve has nest-like powers; it incites us to possession, it is a curved 'corner,' inhabited geometry. Here we have attained a minimum of refuge, in the highly simplified pattern of a daydream of repose. But only the dreamer who curls up in contemplation of loops, understands these simple joys of delineated repose."
-Gaston Bachelard from "Corners" of The Poetics of Space, translated by Maria Jolas
