I have attached a text that has been important in my own practice. “I, Pencil” is written in the first person from the point of view of a pencil. The pencil details the complexity of its own creation, listing its components and the numerous people involved. The text highlights the fact that there are countless people that are linked together in the making of something so small and simple and yet there isn’t a master mind. Anyone dictating or forcibly directing these countless actions and interactions which make the pencil possible, it is instead the invisible hand of the market. I would like to begin by asking you to read this text and then, if you have the time, watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYO3tOqDISE Using whatever medium and scale you choose, I would like you to create a piece of work using the themes from the text as your starting point.
