Eric Kuhlmann - Drawing by Dancing
Drawing by Dancing stems from one seemingly simple question: What is drawing? I have been investigating this question since mid 2018 by implementing a series of computer programs that turn human movement into digital drawings made up of thousands, if not millions of lines. This work draws on my history of computer coding, studies in linguistics and computer science, performing as a singer/songwriter/cabaret artist, and explorations of two-dimensional mediums including painting, printmaking and photography. Underlying this work is an interest in juxtapositions of space and time, noun and verb, thing and action, and how these manifest in thought, communication and artefact.
