For the first week I started experimenting with the basic automatic techniques like frottage, fumage and automatic drawing to explore textures. Aside from that, I was inspired by Cai Guo Qiang’s gunpowder work and its spontaneity,¬†highly experimental style and expressiveness. I decided to include experimental mediums¬†in my exploration as well, eg using an electric mixer attached with a paint brush loaded with black paint, and some others.
