Recording Drawing, 2008
drawing on LP with pencil and sleeve
12 in. x 12 in. x 6 in.
Onnen hand picked obscure dutch music on vinyl LP on which to create Recording Drawing. A hand drawn ear takes the place of the circular label. With a colored pencil (the famous dutch brand HEMA) the purchaser pierces the spindle hole/ear canal. The recording now becomes a spinning top and a drawing tool. Onnen provides the drawing surface - the albumís paper sleeve. Signed dated and numbered on the b-side.
