The drawing was done from the passenger seat by the danish artist Carl Krull, during a road trip across the United States in 2013. It is a pencil on paper drawing and it measures 100X40cm.
The Car Drawings have notations on both the right and left side, noting on what highway, route or street and locations on which I am located at or passing through.
The method used in creating the drawing derived from the need to create a system to overcome the problem of not having a flat surface, which was needed to do the work. Therefore the particular procedure of drawing on a tube was invented, scanning the curved or partial surface working through the paper like a printer, one line at a time. Every line with it's own characteristic, but still corresponding and relating to the previous line and so on. Eventually every bump on the road affects the drawing and it becomes a topographical map of the journey itself.http://www.carlkrull.dk
