This week we indulged in the art experience of automatic drawing. The experience was very interesting nonetheless and the outcome was somewhat surprising. The experience was also relaxing; closing your eyes and letting the pen draw was very soothing. My girlfriend and I didn’t let the pen do ALL the work. We agreed to draw circles, but let the pen take it’s course around the paper. At first I could tell the pen was moving away from the center of the paper, but soon enough I had no idea which part of the paper we were on or if we were even on the paper at all! Our drawing came out as a spiral. What we thought we were drawing was circles, what came out was a bunch of little spirals; these spirals spiraled out towards the edges of the paper. “Spiralception” is what we decided to call it.
