## Drawing Lab

Gupta executed a drawing on paper in 2013 which runs 26’ long horizontally. Later in 2016, she converted that drawing into a “set of instructions” by breaking it down in a basic language involving numbers. From there on she has been inviting practitioners of numbers/ architecture, music and other creative forms to respond to these “set of instructions” as per their interpretation and in their chosen media.

Set of instructions –

1. Continuous vertical parallel straight lines till 26 feet.
2. All lines of equal length – 40 cm each.
3. 300 lines in 1 feet = 7800 lines in total.
4. Number of breaks in between the continuous vertical lines = 19.
5. The breaks are at different intervals and in the form of horizontal lines.
6. 1st break in the form of horizontal line starts at 44th cm from the initial 1st vertical line and 8th cm from top.
7. 2nd break – 44cm + 33cm; top – 32cm
8. 3rd break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm; top – 16cm
