Drawing Lab

Parul 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 to respond to these “set of instructions” as per their interpretation and in their chosen medium.

Set of instructions –

  1. Continuous vertical parallel straight lines till 26 feet.
  1. All lines of equal length – 40 cm each.
  1. 300 lines in 1 feet = 7800 lines in total.
  1. Number of breaks in between the continuous vertical lines = 19.
  1. The breaks are at different intervals and in the form of horizontal lines.
  1. 1st break in the form of horizontal line starts at 44th cm from the initial 1st vertical line and 8th cm from top.
  1. 2nd break – 44cm + 33cm; top – 32cm
  1. 3rd break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm; top – 16cm
  1. 4th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm; top – 38cm
  1. 5th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm; top –14cm
  1. 6th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm; top – 28cm
  1. 7th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm; top – 20cm
  1. 8th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm; top – 30cm
  1. 9th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm; top – 6cm
  1. 10th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm; top – 12cm
  1. 11th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm; top – 26cm
  1. 12th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm; top – 10cm
  1. 13th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm; top –24cm
  1. 14th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm; top – 2cm
  1. 15th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm + 18cm; top – 36cm
  1. 16th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm + 18cm + 42cm; top – 4cm
  1. 17th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm + 18cm + 42cm + 41cm; top – 22cm
  1. 18th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm + 18cm + 42cm + 41cm + 24cm; top – 18cm
  1. 19th break – 44cm + 33cm + 37cm + 38cm + 30cm + 58cm + 38cm + 45cm + 32cm + 62cm + 18cm + 48cm + 21cm + 74cm + 18cm + 42cm + 41cm + 24cm + 57cm; top – 34cm.
  1. Continue the movement till the end i.e. 26 feet and then reverse back the process, again going back to vertical straight lines.

Executable Code
The composition takes an instruction set by Parul Gupta and attempts to recreate the essence of her original composition through an executable set of commands in Processing. Beyond recreating just a high-fidelity version of PG’s original work, this version attempts to compress certain aspects and expand certain other aspects of the time dimension in slow sequential decay through the noise function.
