night writing by nattrozanska night writing by nattrozanska
Text reads: this doesn't compare to the feel of your skin

Following this piece being featured as a Daily Deviation (massive honour, thank you) and it's subsequent popularity, I feel the need to tell the story behind it. This time last year I undertook a project entitled 'Being an Island' in which I denied myself physical human contact for the duration of 2 months, to better understand and appreciate touch and tactile communication, and to see the effect this had on me as an artist and person. This piece was one of the first pieces I made during that time, sadly I can't remember exactly when, maybe about a month in. It's a pretty accurate account of where my head was at that time, and basically sums up the whole project pretty concisely.
More in-depth documentation of the project can be found here: [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-11
Suggester says: In a great visual poem, the medium is inseparable from the message. This piece engages the reader on a tactile level as well as a visual one, and is made even stronger thereby. night writing by ~kidahGEEK ( Suggested by HaveTales-WillTell and Featured by Nichrysalis )

I love the "Being an Island" project, it just seems so thoughtful and in-depth. It makes me wonder, even though I am already such a non-touchy person, if I went that long without contact how would I feel?
And this art is just... it's fascinating and wonderful to say the least. Braille is amazing

Thanks so much, and I couldn't agree more, I have such a fascination with Braille, I find the idea of a tactile language amazing, and it's such fun to work with. I started this project almost two years ago now but I still can't seem to stop working with it. It's a medium I think I will always use.

una mia riflessione in risposta a NIGHT WRITING by *kidahGEEK

il tuo “night writing” in italiano mi piace tradurlo “comunicare al buio”


- PROJECT: not everyone will understand the importance of a road even after the crossing.
- your "night writing" in Italian, I like to translate "talk in the dark"

Talk in the dark, I like that. It has the exact same feeling and connotations I feel this piece should have. Thank you =)<sub>
