drawn by the touch of others

untitled drawing experiment 2014
(a drawing made by the touch of others)

72 pages (11” x 17”) were each buffed  for 1 hour with graphite and bare hands, folded and stacked. 

18 participants are given white cotton gloves (36 gloves in total) and are allowed to touch, handle and engage the pages in any way they desire with the instruction that they are to return the pages to the stack and pile the gloves on the floor when they are done.

The resulting drawing is made on the gloves and is a record of the participants’ touch

The stacked pages are bundled (as they were left) with cotton twine
