NO:::14 Logbook November 19th - The Ralire Study by Milliande Demetriou

The Ralire Study - Sketchbook, Logbook , Image Library , Inquiry into the Nature of Random Linear Remnants , Lines and Art Research Project by Milliande Demetriou



  • thinking about the potential of using bleach in bubble prints on textiles and how to construct a large enough straw or air blowing device so as to not cause harm ... 
  • played with 120 degree angles
  • played with macro high contrast photography shots of soap bubbles 
  • made new Sketchbook Entry 
  • added 3 new creative responses to Breath Stay 1
  • have added a chronological order and numbered entry log to the top of the page so that it can be followed easily in order of appearance .. still tweaking navigation

  • conversation with a friend leads to thinking about the notion of the word " saturated"
  • to pursue a project, to engage in a " BREATHSTAY" until I feel saturated , or as the celtic druids say until " I had my Fill "
    noticing one's fill, staying with an idea until it has come to a natural end , with emphasis on natural and not forced or prolonged for the sake of it, but listening internally for some kind of resonant feeling of conclusion ...before stepping into a new investigative energy
  • I am known to jump to quick over even my own set structure when I glimpse another potential puzzle piece ahead, way ahead .. and often leave the initial impulse behind, long forgotten after 3 more jumps occurred .. I am hoping that honoring the Breath Stay structure will assist me in staying until I am saturated ..and in the process explore my creative responses in a more meaningful and exhaustive way.
  • There is however also a feeling of not leaving loose ends unexplored, no loosing sight of potential fruitful glimpses that will prove to be inspirational so I have decided to keep a Glimpse Log at the bottom of each Logbook entry that I keep taking with me each day adding to it as I go along to remembered and possibly picked up at a later date
  • conversation with another artist friend  today regarding this research project lead to me pondering about the struggle to create random linear marks as humans some more .. I think I need to add that to the initial research outline as that element os quite central to my thinking . Also the idea of perception and how it is so easily influenced
  • "The struggle arises because I am unsure whether it is actually possible for humans to create truly random marks when "he/she" intends to be random . And that question then leads to the why is it so hard when in fact I am deeply drawn to those kind of marks.
    The next avenue of thought then comes that I am interested in comparing other artists resonance to certain types of marks in correlation to my own responses ...do others feel like I do ?
  • the immediacy of  markmaking that seems to escape at times when repeat patterns are thought is also an interesting point to explore , the interest to return to spontaneous, singular markmaking that carries the nature of the initial impulse rather than diluting it
