Today in class we had group discussion about our 40 hours project, and I have decided to do my wind drawing project. I am really looking forward to this project as I think it is an interesting idea, and because I can leave the work for hours so I can get on with my portfolio preparation, but however I need to try out if this idea would work.

I first started experimenting different pens to see which is the most appropriate, and I have decided to use Berol Fine writer, because it is able to create fine lines, that are either lighter or darker, also the ink spreads a bit when left on the paper, this is how I want it to be because the wind wouldn't always be blowing.

after I have left the pen on the branches for 8 hours yesterday, I found that it is not the most suitable place, because it only records the wind from left and right, and I lost my pen...........

I did some research on artist who have done similar things, and I found one from Tim Knowles, he did a series of project called tree drawing, which is by tying the pen on the branches of trees, and let it paint on canvas, the outcome is amazing but I have got limited resources, it is a lot harder to find big trees that he used in his project, also I don't have any stands to support my paper, so I figured out a new why which is to tie the pen on string, and hanged it on the metal door outside.

hanging the pen on the door went really well, and it not restricted by the weather. so I decided to keep doing this process for the rest 3 days in order to complete my 40 hours wind drawing.
