111 Mushrooms, Wall Drawing

November 26, 2010 § Leave a comment

A couple of months back I cast over 50 mushrooms in resin to create static sculptures from extremely temporal plants. To counterbalance that piece I decided to produce a wall drawing of 111 photos of mushrooms I had taken over the summer. Each photo was projected onto the black board for roughly 12.5 seconds, meaning I was drawing for around 23 minutes. My intention was for the manner in which the drawing was done to reflect the short lived nature of mushrooms.

The piece was done in the J05 lecture room in ECA; hopefully it won’t be wiped off for a while and maybe cause the architecture students some confusion.

Thanks to Svetlana Kondakova for taking a couple hundred photos while I was drawing.
