Drawings Of Linear Ideas

Beginning with notebook sketches in 1900, Polish architect Wacław Szpakowski dedicated much of his free time to hand-drawing elaborate mazes and patterns using only a single line.
"Seen today, Szpakowski’s work anticipates seriality, accelerated temporalities and the increasing density of visual memory. Resembling circuitries or digitally generated diagrams, the motifs of Szpakowski’s drawings evoke the new technologies of image production that affect perception, heightening the crisis of attention. Exploring the dichotomy of a focused and distracted, decentered gaze, Szpakowski’s project can be understood as a critique of the changing modalities of vision."
