Jin Yu (Stanford, Class of ’10) created this piece in response to the assignment I’d created.
Select a simple, common object such as a button or mug. Draw the object once each day for 21 consecutive days paying special attention to variety. Assemble the drawings according to themes which make sense to you. The drawings can be at any scale. Do not spend more than 5 minutes per drawing.
The purpose of the assignment was to get students to learn to see objects from new perspectives as well as experiment with alternative ways of representing forms that they may take for granted.
