Drawing lines on surfaces we’ve developed art and design, poetry and music, biology, physics, and computational systems. None of those social-professional engagements are possible without a pencil and piece of paper. In that sense I view my studio, with all its messes, to be a place for dreaming.
“The sky is a calendar,” wrote the American anthropologist Alexander Marshack, trying to capture something about how we recast that enormous, rolling mystery-display into a kind of codex. Of course, the sky is only a calendar when I draw it, inscribing its outré spaces into the silent leaves of my book. When I map the sky in this way, my pencil tip slips from my shoulder through clouds to the sun and moon, gathering shadows and intervals, and spinning across surfaces that are not surfaces. I look, see, and speculate; the feedback is elastic, the sky becomes legible, and I am changed.
