Walking with an eye out for incidental marks and compositions, and trying to come to terms with what appropriating them might mean. What is lost when these trappings are assimilated into a drawing, do they evolve? Is some raw essence neutralized? I'm thinking about our relationship to corporeal mark making, to the energy and looseness of gesture -- those things that, once we learn to control line and form, we lose. Those things we have lost as we move towards sleekness, speed, ease, convenience, digitalization (what ho! this is being typed and transmitted digitally is it not?) But these bits of evidence have preserved that to some degree, (naturalist-style?) Now they've been distilled in a photograph, and they will likely go through a third iteration, and land on paper. How much of the original, accidental layering of information and experience is being honored in this situation? Is it gone as soon as it is captured and pinned down?
