#11: Entopic Graphomania

Gather Materials:

  • a piece of paper
  • a drawing tool of your choice

Today’s Exercise

This exercise is based on a Surrealist game. Simply grab a sheet of paper—it can be a page from an old paperback book, or anything with markings—and place dots on specific words or letters. You choose what set of marks, words, or letters you want. Then connect the dots with curved, zigzag or straight lines to create a pattern. These exercises reveal hidden patterns in negative space, show you how choices can make a difference and will help you engage in randomness to take your work a few steps further.


Reflections on the Exercise

  • I was overthinking it…  Is that a dot on the page or some lint? Am I suppose to go over the same dot more than once? Do the shapes have to be joined?
