Lewitt’s “Wall Drawing”


I think Lewitt’s Wall Drawing can be thought as a code in some perspectives. It is giving out instructions to the person who is executing it and it doesn’t differ even if somebody else draws it. It always need to have the same outcome just like code. Code doesn’t give you a different answer because you are a different person; it does the same for everyone. When I was executing it, the instruction itself was not difficult but the way that it was written was more confusing since all of the instruction was put into one sentence instead of trying to explain it short and clearly. It seemed more like a math question trying to figure where the dots and the lines goes to and connecting them together. I had hard time translating the long languages into instruction rather than the actual drawing itself.
