All My Love: Matters of the Heart and Mind – Diagrammatic Drawing No 2’, 2020 (ongoing series)
A1 translucent paper, highlighters and black ink pen

Working through the process of creating a diagrammatic drawing (approximately 90 minutes), what has become apparent as I become a slow algorithm, is the sense of calm I feel, when working with profound, heartfelt matters, as matter. Not feeling lost or paralysed by personal decisions, but detached from the why of placing one aspect of Sternberg’s triarchic theorem for love here, or another there.

Working with interpersonal relationships as a data set, creates some distance, to ‘care less’ [1]. The welcome feeling of calm is then followed by a moment of surprise, that each drawing is unique, although each aspect of love, which collectively forms the triarchic theorem, still remains the same.
