Common Threads is a research-based work that examines philosophies of mark-making in contemporary drawing: What is a line and how does the body draw? How does a drawing unfold over time and what happens when the sequence is changed? What takes place when we retrace and alter another's lines? By examining such questions through a series of interactive, permutable photographs, the work also insists that drawing is a process--one that unfolds in time--rather than an outcome.
