2003 Rockefeller New Media Proposal
Three years ago I began recording the sounds of colleagues and fellow artists as a possible way to continue the investigation into the true nature of the act of drawing. This project has evolved into what I am now calling Drawing Voices. My project is made possible by micro recording equipment and processing technology. In addition to my own drawing recordings, I am collaborating with another artist and a writer once a week drawing, writing and recording short wave at cemeteries in Atlanta. I am curious about the relationship and extensive history that drawing, technology and conjuring have had. I am exploring the gray area between writing and inscription as a means of discovering 'spirit' voices under the influence of sound and shadow.
