Heather Hansen in my opinion is an incredible artist. Her kinetic drawings are so fascinating, calming and peaceful. She is based in both New Orleans and Paris, and creates phenomenal art. My favourite creation of her is titled Emptied Gestures. Simply because, she created it with no end goal or any vision of what the outcome would look like, rather she created a piece that she produced by just translating her body movements unto paper. Something about emptied gestures reminds me of brain circuits, and the complexity of the brain. Watch the creation of Emptied Gestures below, and visit Heather Hansen’s website for more information.
