I’d spent a lot of time collecting data thus far and so decided to start combining elements and processing data by creating drawings in the studio. The data visually appeared topographical aesthetically speaking and captured both a micro and macro cross section of the landscape in it appearance. The strong graphic mark of the Sharpie pen (other permanent markers are available) created some intriguing powerful marks.
In the evening I was asked to give a short talk on my practice which was a useful exercise in thinking about my practice and articulating where I was with my research. Although my practice is print orientated I utilise new digital technologies within this which opened up a similar line of thread to the Digital Media students as they were familiar with e.g. sound editing etc. however they weren’t familiar with printmaking.
