An interactive performance for Drafting, a two day event investigating a range of approaches to drawing through performance and to drawing as a performative process.

A low-key activity where I use a clothes lint roller to lift surface dust off walls, floors, people and objects using the peel-off sheets to create landscape/portraits of the event. I am intrigued by the way that drawings emerge as traces of encounters. Time and place are registered when those vestiges of events are deposited on a receptive surface, where every presence, in order to know itself as present, bears the trace of an absence which defines it.
