‘Invitation graduation galleries design Academy Eindhoven’. Mathilde Alders wrote every word on the wall, and improvised on this theme for seven days with a felt-tip pen each time in just red and black – the colours of the academy. While she was drawing, she let herself be photographed every fifteen seconds. the resulting photos were then edited into a digital invitation: a stop motion film featuring not only Alders herself, but also a Stanley knife, a saw, a spanner, a pair of compasses, a needle and a computer mouse. She generated the basic forms for free illustrations. little stretched blocks, triangles, circles, ellipses and lines form extravagant, impulsive patterns on the wall. Until it was full, when Alders painted it white again for the next word.
