Participants are invited to make a connection with each other without using any words, by drawing a continuous line together. The pencils pass from hand to hand without being lifted off the line. The mutual relationships between the lines, the hands and the interactions of the participants constitute a unique process, which shows both the individuality of drawing and the solidarity of a collective that moves as one body during drawing.
