Project: Figurative Drawing Device
Figurative Drawing Device is a pantograph adapted for the purpose of making “portraiture”. Two people are needed to operate it. One stands against the wall, and the other traces his or her outline using one tip of a pantograph, creating a mechanically reduced silhouette. This project opens up the possibility of very physically involved collaboration between two people. It is an invitation to play, to be fully present, to be aware of each other.
