During this telematic drawing performance on 16/02/11, Drawn Together created a large wall drawing in response to a projection of a live video feed of the night sky on the island of Papay Westray, off Orkney. Materials used included graphite powder, pencil, water, chalk and white light from a torch.
Video of the performance was transmitted live back to the Papay Nights Festival via SKYPE and was projected as part of the Festival’s Opening Night. The performance featured spoken word commentary transmitted by SKYPE from one of the group’s members who was in Australia.
