Unthinking Matter

Thomas Pålsson


"The experiment is a simple one. Attempt the impossible task of drawing without thinking about it. The techniques used are classical drawing with a black felt tip pen and hand-crafting of screenprints – both on paper. I listen to online talks, audio tracks of documentaries and music to keep my mind distracted. Small black lines slowly compile into depictions of possible new beginnings – embryos of new worlds. An organic process of becoming that mimes nature’s own production of the physical, where uniform units come together and complexity emerges."


The book is published in conjuction with the exhibition Unthinking Matter by Thomas Pålsson at Limited Works in Copenhagen, September 2015.
