Tim Hawkinson: Tantric Drip Drawings
To create this group of large-scale drawings, Tim Hawkinson constructed an apparatus that functions in much the same way as a tattooist's needle. Large sheets of paper are mounted on a turntable fixed flat to the wall. Using his contraption, he applies India ink to the paper and allows it to run in straight lines. He then rotates the paper and repeats the process from different angles to construct complex geometric forms.
