Dynamic Drawing, Empowering Performance
Everton Wright’s artistic practice revolves around the creation of immensely large drawings, walking in beach terrain through orchestrated collaborative efforts. For his collaboration with Gail Pearce from Royal Holloway it was agreed that a new walking drawing would be created implementing a new set of goals:
1. implement technology as part of Wright’s ongoing exploration of public interactive drawing
Creativeworks London funding was sufficient to cover the research and development side of the process, however, additional funds were needed in order to create a new walking drawing piece which would be the basis of the research. Wright and Pearce approached the Royal Holloway Alumni Fund, the application was refused due to Royal Holloway wanting a portion of ownership of the resulting artwork. Another application was made to the Arts Council, this too was unsuccessful. Without additional funding the project was unable to progress.
