Not to Scale

Not to Scale draws two people at a time into shared experiments and intertwined processes of drawing, erasing and listening. Guided by a binaural soundtrack, participants create a shared journey using pencil on blank sheets of paper. Crude doodles soon come to life in a comical and unsettling picture book narrative that plays constantly with the tension between creation and destruction, life and death, energy and entropy. Things – stories, pictures, ideas – appear and disappear constantly on the page, a site which starts to unfold into a lo-fi carnival of possibility; a carnage of crossing out, overlapped drawings and landscape traces.
