Drawing Lab: Yimei Liu (Olivia) 15 May 2014
Time: 10,30- 11,30
Location: Drawing center
Material: Bring any material you’d like to draw.
My Peer workshop is a extend experience of my research proposal. I would try to exam
the interesting gap that memories would change and combining imagination after
repeating behavior. I chose calligraphy as my exam object is because that the original
Chinese calligraphy are based on image of objects. After thousands year developed, they
Change a lot, they appears more abstractive now,but still could track the original
imagination. The peer workshop is separated in to three sections.
The First section:
seconds. After every piece, I would like all participants could draw down their impression.
5minutes break with discussion.
The second section:
calligraphy would be covered. And all participants need to draw at less five images after
the first impression one by one. 5minutes break with discussion.
The third section:
After above of two sections, participants would asked to create a image from these
practices. (Write down five elements which reminded you when you drawing in last 2
sections) last piece could be create by any form. 5minutes break with discussion.
It is interesting to see how Chinese calligraphy is structured & an exercise in assessing how we look, remember and draw. I found it reminiscent of of Martin’s workshop.
