Wind Drawings


This assignment required us to explore our senses to create a drawing from our observations of sound from a live Owens Valley sound feed.  We had to rely on our hearing to come up with a set of drawings that by visualizing the sounds that we heard.  It was an interesting way of conveying what a landscape sounded to each of us.  I tried to use pressure of the drawing media on the paper to symbolize the intensity of the sounds that i heard.  Repetitive noises were transferred to paper as groupings of dots and small marks.  Ambient noises were drawn as shadows, and machinery was drawn as hard lines.  It was an exciting start to the exploration we were going to be doing this quarter in Owens Valley.
