RM007 _ One Day Drawing

2
Draw a horizontal line with a pencil across a
standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of A4 paper.  Make new, or contact
existing acquaintances in Hawaii and Germany. Using a global air mail
carrier such as Fedex or UPS, send your line drawing to your
acquaintance in Hawaii with instructions for them to send on to your
acquaintance in Germany with instructions for them to send the
envelope on to yourself.  Make sure you include prepaid envelopes for
your acquaintances.  Upon receiving the drawing back, pin it to a wall
with small simple pins, and think about how in a very real way you
have just drawn a line around the entire globe.  Wow, you’ve just
drawn the longest possible single direction line on the planet!  Now,
think about the largeness of the globe and your very specific location
on it.

One Day Drawing, 2013, graphite on paper, flown once around the
world, 8 1/2 x 11 inches.
