CrossFit in One Line
I made these line studies with one line, tracing, arcing, doubling back, following the lines present in the photograph. Using one line in a tracing makes a game of deconstructing a photograph into the constituent lines my eye senses. The more I traced, the more I had to question, what is a line? How do I know a line? Would even a minority agree on a set of lines? Practice like this outside of the camera heightens my awareness of these question when my eye is in the viewfinder, looking for lines for pattern, rhythm, frame, figure ground, implied, and definite.
