Part of my practice involves an interpretive form of automatic drawing or writing exploring crossovers between the typographic, kinesthetic and sonic.
For this piece I created an automatic typgraphic drawing in response to performed poetry by William Wardlaw Rogers.
Ink on paper
20″ x 22″ (47cm x 50cm)

The sun is shining. The wind is blowing.
Three sheets of writing paper on the bench, held down by a phone, are blown away.
The phone hits the ground.
I make chase for the paper stapled together at the corners.
Tourette Syndrome is a series of drawings inspired by Zakiewicz’s interest in exploring the brain’s response to stimuli and exploring the various filters or lack of filters and control we have over our actions
