projected drawings

OHPs (overhead projectors) were used to scale up the original drawings, which were made on found papers such as wallpaper, envelopes, cigarette paper. 

Photocopied (xeroxed) on to acetate, and placed on the OHP, these copied drawings were played with in terms of scale, composition, layering before being traced / manipulated / photographed. Some of the experiments will be the end product, others will be the basis for more developed work: paintings, illustration, design.

Kirsty Hall: envelope drawings

About The Diary Project

Kirsty Hall
"Every day in 2007 I drew on an envelope and placed something secret inside. I then posted the envelope to myself before my midnight deadline. When the envelopes returned, they were scanned and blogged here. I successfully completed Phase One of the project on 31st December 2007. All 365 envelopes are now being kept unopened until they can be exhibited as a whole artwork, at which point members of the public will be able to open the letters and investigate the contents. "
