Time Based
This work uses time to establish a conceptual framework that determines the mechanism for the creation of the work. The time spent on each drawing can be a predetermined duration, defined by the media, based on the times/durations of other events or activities, or a combination of the above. Once the initial conditions for the drawing are determined, the process is mechanical. The end result is not based on aesthetic decisions, but on a rigorous adherence to the initial conceptual framework.
