When do things get lost in translation? And when do they instead just turn into something more abstract with its own beauty?
This is what I asked myself after making a simple drawing exercise with my girlfriend. Sitting with my back towards her she drew random pictures on my back which I tried to replicate by drawing what I felt. This simple obstacle in communication made room for so many beautiful random drawings that I asked myself if the information was really lost in the process or just converted into something abstract. Even though the picture itself could be beyond recognition you might still get a feeling of what could've been drawn.
This exercise makes it easy for me to free my mind from thought patterns and helps me think outside the box.
To share my experiences I made these simple little postcards showing the before and after.
These are always available! Let me know if you want some :)
