This Line examines the position of the sketchbook in the current era. Video images are projected onto a blank artist’s sketchbook placed on a table. As the viewer flips through the pages of the book, sensors detect that the pages are being flipped, and the projected video changes accordingly. The images are like memories of digital sketches from different places and times, and are composed of combinations of analog and digital craft. All of the images reflect upon the relationship between nature and technology—each highlighting some aspect of natural phenomena.
