Kooky Yoga

Kooky Yoga

2005, Graphite, Ink and Colored Pencil on Paper

To begin this drawing, I transcribed several nights’ worth of my sleep talking (recorded with a voice activated recorder) directly onto the paper. I began in the center and rotated the paper with each word. After transcribing the information from the recordings, I outlined and darkened all the non-intersecting segments of the words and letters, creating a black and white pattern. Then, I colored the negative spaces between the letters. The outer words attached to this inner mass form a sentence: “Assume kooky yoga neatens doughy oviods”. These words were based on 6 nonsense mutterings from my sleep talking recordings. I transcribed them and entered them into my pocket dictionary, which translated the nonsense into actual words. I formed these into a sentence.
