The Clipperton Project
Orkney Islands, Scotland

September 2014

The month of September 2014 found j.frede boarding the sailboat Selkie in Northern Scotland where he was an Artist in Residence under the direction of The Clipperton Project. During the next month j.frede produced 6 drawings with the drawing machine titled “Drawn At Sea” that he had created for this project. Using the motion of the ship at sea the drawing machine worked during each voyage as they sailed amongst the Orkney Islands. Along with the Drawn At Sea drawings a number of videos, writings, pendulum drawings and audio recordings were made.
