Performative drawing piece, 72″h x 110″w x 20″l, ink on adding machine paper on steel armature, 2012

Thinking about ink drawings as an artistic practice and a way of marking time, Abacus was a performative art piece created for The Brightest Party Ever for Leadership AustinĀ at the Long Center, and then showed at Austin City Hall. Using adding machine paper and a steel armature to create a counting machine, individual ink drawings were created along the length of the paper, adding together the shapes and the time. Long strips of drawings were given to viewers as a memento of time spent and created.Abacus, view 1 Abacus, view 4 Abacus, view 4
