Artprize Truck Drawing Bottle Prep
Dave Ford is a visual artist living in El Paso, Texas, originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He is participating in Artprize 2010, competing against more than 1,200 other artists to win $250,000. His entry; a truck drawing.
Going through the inventory of water bottles is a crucial part of the Truck Drawing preparation. Every bottle has to be checked for leaks and a functional graphite point by suspending the bottless. Driving more than 1,600 miles, the pencils on the bottles will create the marks and lines of the truck drawing.
