Original drawing in white pencil on black paper.
"An ongoing series of drawings, begun while on residency at the Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016. A film (movie title in brackets of each work title) is projected from start to finish onto a sheet of black paper. As the movie plays as much of the action and scenery are traced in realtime onto the black paper with white pencil. As a result these drawings portray an abstraction of the visual bombardment experienced at 24fps when watching a film, and a compression of that time, space and movement into a single image or memory."
