Days of laughter

 

laughter moves back and forth with variations, just like the waves in the ocean

by using the process of drawing I depict laughter

to portray laughter over time I erase and redraw

changes are not to seek a perfect depiction of laughter, but the depiction itself

During five weeks I made five big drawings of laughter (130 x 100 cm). I started on Mondays and drew, erased, drew, erased and drew again – and on Fridays I stopped. I photographed the process in ever changing daylight and each drawing resulted in more than hundred photos. The fifth and last drawing was utterly uninteresting during all the process and thus didn’t make as an art piece.

Days of Laughter I-IV exist in several forms – as drawings, a set of 4 artist books in a box –  and as animations/projections.
