I have just discovered this fantastic artist. Her work of the performance and the drawing is facinating and very zen. Very inspiring!
"During my actions my eyes are closed, I sometimes draw with both hands simultaneously, questioning the control of the eye and of the singular hand. I am in a state of maximal concentration. I experience a need to see or create an image, which becomes gradually visible through the lens of the suspended camera. The sound becomes louder, as if cutting through my body. To a certain degree that physicality of sound inspired me to impose on people a demand of silence. Silence allows for maximal focus, we become aware of the presence of our bodies. Similarly in the tradition of classical music concerts, there is this demand of silence, which opens the door to listening. The sound enters the body. A similar demand of silence occurs in temples as an expression of respect. " Interview selection from her website
