Red Drawing layers the sampled image of a splatter of blood on a bed of white snow. To the unsuspecting viewer, this image emerges like a splatter on an unpolluted ground. Every second that passes represents a new layer of pigment in this piece so that after a minute, the “canvas” is completely saturated, almost illegible. The sound corresponds to the dramatic rhythmic striking of a hammer on a bell. This video uses a sample from Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Vol.1 (2003).
