I made parallels between lines in the construction work and the construction drawings.
Studying the lines in the construction work, I was inspired by the string line. A taut length of string, dipped in pigment, is snapped against the floor, creating a line to mark the location of the future wall. The line is not only functional, but also aesthetically intriguing. In the soft trace left by the pigment, both the strands of the string and the varying pressure are visible. The string line also became my painting tool.
In the construction drawings, the line becomes charged with meanings. Starting from discontinuity and thickness, the meanings are precisely defined. The lines combine to form patterns with approved symbolic meanings: a door here, an opening there. These lines are semantically intriguing. The relationship between the lines drafted and lines constructed leaves space for exploration.
