The drift/shift series was my first experiment in approaching and allowing the animal body to 'speak' through its 'wordless dance.' The essence of the process is timing. The first impulse to make the marks is followed by the second impulse to apply the paper at the right moment. In a sense, the process is quite Zen-like - it happens. However what happens is the outcome of the animal body responding to momentary intentions of the conscious mind.
