Beautiful time-lapse of a giant collaborative drawing from Aleksandra Mir’s solo show

London-based artist Aleksandra Mir has been busy over the past month investigating the process of drawing in a collaborative experiment that invites participants to contribute to a giant collage of the London skyline, rendered entirely with Sharpies. The process of creating the work was part of the exhibition itself, with Aleksandra and her team engaged in drawing everything by hand during the first days of the show. But for those that missed it there’s also a beautiful time-lapse film of the process, providing context and insight to this giant piece of collaborative draughtsmanship.

Aleksandra Mir at Drawing Room will run until 19 July. See our preview of the show on our London listings site, This at There.
