Carolyn Sotelo explains the project in the U of A News you-tube interview. http://uanews.org/node/47562

Camera phone fuzz but you can see we have a ways to go…
As I draw, and in-between talking with museum visitors, I am thinking of a zen garden or watching oxbows form from above…I am also finalizing shopping lists and travel plans…and even (goal) not “thinking” at all. Ah.
Actually this morning “moving meditation” benefits other seemingly unrelated art projects. I am even more aware of patterns and the element, line. It’s also great fine tuning for the eye-hand coordination. And it’s fun to draw on museum walls-you know, breaking the rules.
