"key historical references to the camera-obscura trail strands of praxis and technique, hovering in a limnal zone in the margins of tourist attraction, Fun Fairs and surveillance equipment throughout many contemporary disciplines. Scenographically divesting the individual artist of cult status and engaging a societal medium. the Draw Me/Tedna Ve installation seeks definitions of materialities in evidence of communities. Given a role to produce portraits with minimal technology the emphasis is on collaboration and use of the most basic hand to eye reactions. A discourse concerning geometry and physics are reoriented in the human face through pen and paper: investigating the geography of a community."
