London-based artist Aleksandra Mir in the past month started a collaborative experiment investigating the process of drawing. Participants were invited to contribute to a giant picture of the London skyline, rendered entirely with Sharpies. The process of creating the work was part of the exhibition itself, with Aleksandra and her team engaged in drawing everything by hand during the first days of the show. But for those of you that couldn’t be there, here’s a time-lapse film of the process, providing context and insight to this giant piece. Aleksandra Mir at Drawing Room will run until July 19th.
