Drawing performance foreground the act of drawing as an environmental attunement to the events and features of the surroundings. Consistent with my other drawing performances and my ongoing bimanual drawing practice, the performative aspect emphasizes the live ongoing embodied relationship that drawing makes visible and register as part of an ecology of events. Further this work reinforces an commitment to collective and collaborative work
