Lewitt- Isabella

I’d like to think that these drawings should exist only in word form, and not to be executed. This way, they are forced to be imagined and for the most part, fail as well due to the complexity of the instructions, and this dynamic appeals to me: describing an impossibly-imagined drawing.
I think for the most part, this is very much like code, where I would play the part of a faulty computer. It was frustrating to follow, and even more frustrating to think about, and it makes me wonder if Lewitt drew the pictures beforehand, or wrote out a set of instructions and let someone else figure them out.
