Heather Kathleen Rudd
In this work Thinking Space (Momentary Archives), artist Heather Rudd focuses on how our minds are influenced by the outside world. As she describes the piece,
"In this work I use the act of writing as a way of transferring my exact thoughts during a 21 minute duration onto a piece of 21 x 21 cm piece of paper whilst my eyes are closed. During this time, my thoughts become influenced by the actions of those around me, therefore the writing becomes a pictoral representation of what is happening in the environment at that moment in time. If something else were to occur during the performance, the piece would appear completely different, thus making them specific to a moment in the past. Over a period of time a library of these slides is amassed and viewers are able to view the preserved drawings according to a particular date and time."
