Tabloid – Square Root(4)

Following on from my drawings in the Tearing Space Apart book, I have produced another drawing using a similar process.

  • Take a sheet of tabloid newspaper, tear it into 4 pieces
  • Tear each piece into 4 pieces
  • Tear each piece into 4 pieces
  • Lay the pieces out and number methodically
  • Mix pieces randomly into a pile
  • Take a fragment of paper and let it float onto a sheet of white tabloid-sized paper
  • Draw lines around the fragment of paper. The number of times the line is drawn should equate to the sum of the numbers on the fragment of paper.
  • Draw fragments of paper from the pile and repeat as above, the outlines should only be drawn onto blank space and not across existing lines.
