‘bannana’

Synopsis:

 

Bannana came about when I was sitting in my studio space questioning how a drawing is made; the link between eye, brain, arm and hand. Attempting to replicate something that exists in the world onto paper seemed somewhat of a meaningless task, given that no amount of realism could account for seeing the object in its true physical state.

In order to investigate this further, I set up an environment to test my ability as a human to recreate through drawing what I could see, and used the camera to record the experiment.
