Body Adornment- Art of Journeys

Line Art by Rachael Sadler
Have you ever been stuck in traffic, delayed on a train on stuck on a bus thinking about all the time your wasting on the journey? Of course you have, so have I, so I decided to document my journey’s by drawing them. Not in the traditional way, but by letting the movement of the journey draw itself. I used a mix of different paper and ink, my favourite outcome was achieved using blotting paper and fast flowing black ink pens.

From the drawings I also recorded the snippets of conversations I overheard to give a sense of surroundings and a the piece of work its own voice.

Finally I then recreated my favourite journeys, 6 in total, into different large scale wire and button body adornments or living art. They all were designed to link in together. Originally designed as body adornment but now displayed as art on my wall.. I love it but would love to know what you think?
