Blind Bestiario English Version

Updated: Jun 23

Performed by Michele Di Erre and Andrea Gagliotta



The "bestiario" that we present is a collective bestiary to witch anyone that has “will” can partecipate and test himself.The participant will be an active part of the performance even if he can’t see. Through the blind sight drawing we’ll try to reveal the hidden world of our visual memory. Each of the “beast” excerpt by the participant will be cataloge using the same method and will be part of the “bestiario usign blindsight drawing book”.​ On this page you will be able to read the rules of the game of the Bestiary game version using the blind sight drawing technique to try at home with friends.

Send us your works at micheledierre@yahoo.it e they will be cataloged on our bestiary web page.


Rules:

​first if you're in hurry.. don't play!You need to be at last in two to play.

Each player thinks about an animal to tell to who is setting beside him.

Ready... go!

Write, on the back of your paper, the name of the animal that you have to draw, year, your name, age and your profession.

Now close your eyes and try to figure the animal.

Once you see it, whit your eyes close, start drawing it on the paper.

Don't worry if you get out of the paper, it's wot important; it's important for you to draw exactly what you're seeing in your mind in that very moment.

Take your time.. it's not a race!

When you feel like you're finished open your eyes, you will be amazed to see how you're mind has express you thoughts.

This game helps people to get rid of their auto-criticism and above all it helps understanding that for drawing it's not important to see but observe: paper, pencil and time; discover a world that slips away as fast as if we where looking at it through a train window.

Repeat the game 4 or 5 times and you will notice the improving of your skill to focus on the figure you're trying to see.

Have Fun!
