"Debate drawings"
   This is a work I've just completed:

It's an interactive work on the subject of the 'wreckers'. In early January a container ship was grounded off the coast of Devon, England, and just like they did centuries before, the locals came to loot what they could. The police stood helpless as locals took BMW's out of containers...

My idea with this is to make what I call a 'debate drawing'. I wanted to make drawings that were more connected to a subject, and to have a debate going on inside a picture - or even a debate that creates a picture. So I wrote a computer script and hooked it up to web feeds. The comments you post are mixed in with other comments from a web feed, and then converted into shapes and lines.

Please have a go and post a comment, as every comment is added to the system and makes the pictures more interesting/ richer. You can make your own postcard versions for printing at 300dpi.

The best pictures will be printed big, to be shown in a gallery context.
