Pull balances chance and control. Based on Marcel Duchamp's 3 Standard Stoppages (1913-14), each drawing is made using a 1 meter long string as a drawing tool. The string is soaked in various concentrations of sumi-ink, dropped on the paper, and pulled to create a wide variety of unexpected compositions.
