Digitising Wave Riding (By Ballpoint Pen)

The way a surfer carves a line in the face of a wave is a single flow, as dynamic as the shape of rolling water itself. Russell Crotty has been sketching wave/rider relationships, one fraction of a second per frame.

Some of the ballpoint pen drawn canvases include 40,000 cells at over 3m x 3.6m large. All to capture what is essentially a few seconds of a line on a water, cut by man.
