This piece was made in order to create a large-scale drawing using performance as a means. Gestures generated formal results that were both intentional and random. Mast and a McKain, a professional dancer, worked with scores, meditations and photographs to explore animal impulses, the animal body and various ways that messages can be transmitted without words.
