As part of Parallel Lines, Connor Willumsen’s project consists of live portrait sessions over video chat with other home-ridden individuals from around the world. His drawings are made simply and directly, allowing him to only draw what he can see on screen. Bizarre glitches, visual artifacts, and low resolutions are incorporated into the drawing process, resulting in a somewhat deformed but accurate depiction of a video chat.
The visual interaction between the artist and the subjects will be well documented in the drawings alone. Beyond that, Connor Willumsen will take photos of the physical arrangement to be published on his artist’s page.
