This 175 foot drawing is mounted on a table with cranks for scrolling through the work. The viewable area of this piece is exacting the same as the amount I had open while drawing. Each section is self-contained but relates to previous and subsequent parts. The translucent paper gives the viewer a “foreshadowing” of the future parts and a “memory” of the ones passed.
These scrolls were made from medical paper that is used to cover examining tables in the doctor's office. The paper appears fragile but it is actually quite strong. I rolled them out into sheets about 110" long. The drawings have between 2 and 5 panels each.
