In this project, I attempted to attain an altered state while drawing. I set up experiments for myself, becoming both doctor and patient.
The experiments were:
Mirror Drawing ~ Drawing with both hands at the same time.
Faint Drawing ~Fainting with graphite powder on my head.
Blind Drawing ~ Drawing while blindfolded.
Prayer Drawing ~ Repetitive writing of the same word or phrase.
Self-Hypnosis Drawing ~ Drawing after listening to a self-hypnosis video.
Shock Drawing ~ Using a machine that sends different electric frequencies while drawing.
Sleep Deprivation Drawing ~ Drawing after not sleeping for a certain period of time.
After exploring my unconscious self through these experiments, I reexamined these ideas through additional drawings. The residues of my drawing experiments were left in my studio. My studio became a drawing.
