Helen Frank

Page 1 | 2 | 3 | Information & News




Various books have been used as prompts; apparatus for drawing

Each image is the product of a pre-arranged method
 
Image 1 - 4
Using my sketchbook as a source for redrawing
The content of the book is my re-presentation (understanding) of research and ideas
that the research inspired
Importantly for the drive to re-present the content is the fact that none of the ideas were ever realised (or started)
Each page of the source sketchbook is photocopied onto tracing paper
The tracing paper photocopies are placed in the same order as the pages of the sketchbook
Taking in order the first 3 tracing paper pages (#1, #2, #3), place together to create a composite page (made up of the 3 layers of pages)
Flip over
Re-draw the 3 layer composite pages onto A3 paper (an enlargement of the A6 book)
Repeat the redrawing process this time taking away #1 and adding page #4
Keep the 3 pages composite pages reversedComplete the process for the whole book


Image 5 - 6
Drawing a reading list and making a book out of each listed book

Image 7
Type A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
Complete the task with enthusiasm, but without a critical knowledge of quantum mechanics. (A translation from expert to novice has occurred however faithful the copy intended to be. Both homage and subversion)
