Alongside editing the video, I’ve started to draw one image per word pair. A simple drawing by hand that I then scan and transfer onto a larger digital canvas where I collect all word pair images. I’ve started with the beginning of the list but then skipped the words that I find difficult to visually express in a small drawing. How to draw a ‘nice day’ with a couple of lines?
For the word pairs that are less abstract – ‘white horse’ – it’s easy to commit to an image that I want to draw. The process becomes almost intuitive, decisions of which line to draw, what to leave out, becomes a flowing activity that helps me to think through the list, the experiment, its relevance today. I’m not entirely sure where the drawings will live once I’ve drawn each of the 25 word pairs, but for now I just trust the process and see where it leads.
