Impulse Drawings are technology process tests. They are not altered or composited digitally, but rather composed in a single motion using a scanner, with objects, light, and shadows. My mark-making impulses are captured in the time that it takes the scanning element to move across the surface. They are temporal and not repeatable. Ordinarily scanners are used with an intended outcome, they perform a predictable function; I coax the scanner into becoming a mark-making tool, to function unpredictably, for an outcome open to chance based on the type of light used, opacity of objects, shadows, brightness of the room, etc. In this respect I have some control, I direct the drawings, but blindly—I cannot predict exactly what the scanner will capture or how it will interpret.
