Day 3, 99 ways to map a walk…

A slow start so I decided to make a small sculpture with some materials I had brought with me…

… some wire and some red wool…

…I imagined the walk and started twisting the wire right and left as I followed the route in my mind.

I then decided to stretch the wire into a 3d shape as opposed to a line, and link the start and finish with some red wool

This was the result..

I was pretty pleased with this. It will make it into the final exhibition alongside my shoes, continuous line drawing and all the visitor’s pictures.

Still quiet, so I decide to construct something else.  More collected materials…

..and another structure…

I’m not so sure about this one, but I like the masking tape outline of the walk on the floor.

Still no visitors today so I decide to crack open the gigantic charcoal stick I bought yesterday..

Yep, it is MASSIVE!

Decide to do the walk again for inspiration.

When I walk through Market Tower and look up I particularly like the perspective of the lantern and the glass roof. So I draw a simple sketch and take it back to the gallery (and the charcoal…)

Had great fun doing this!

Going to tape some cardboard together into large ‘canvasses’ so people can have a go at using this.
