hand made mark

I have really been interested in looking at minimal conceptual art lately. Partially because aesthetically that seems to be what I am into and partially because I have been making my students read all about conceptual art and photography. Which is of course totally exciting half of them and totally confusing/overwhelming half of them.

Anyhoo all of this led me back to Hanne Darboven's work. I looked at work quite a bit in graduate school when I was doing some serial text work but again am drawing to the simplicity of concept and the beauty of the hand made mark.

Read an review of her work here.

The marks could easily be stitching. I am not familiar with her work...Thank you for introducing her. I love your blog!
