From quilts to scrolls

This is what I did Friday and Sunday for 5 hours total (with breaks): I wrote almost all the news headlines I had recorded in March. The studio was deserted on Sunday, so it was really quiet. I listened to the art history lecture–on modernism–from the course I’m auditing.

I asked myself how it felt to re-write these headlines in this way–on a large and long piece of paper…sitting on the floor, on a chair, going up a ladder. I felt it was more of an embodied experience than when I was writing them in my sketchbook. Definitely, a calmer experience. It was like processing, working through something.
