I did this activity with my boyfriend and I must say, out of the five years we have been together we have never done anything like this before. We did the automatic drawing in my living with the lights dimmed while we listened Cold Play. Who knew so much emotion could be the end result of drawing. This experience was different for me. It was an unfamiliar feeling and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing, but it was interesting to see how such a simple task can turn into something more. This experience turned out to be so different than what I had imagined. But maybe I learned something about my relationship or we both learned something about each other.
The drawing itself wasn’t as “ugly” as I had imagined considering the fact that we did this with our eyes closed. It actually came out pretty cool in my opinion. However, I can’t ignore the fact that the first thing that came to mind when looking at the end result was: chaos. My mind continues to wander.
