Unconscious Production
The Unconscious/Conscious Doodle
UN/SPOKEN ARCHIVES is a project by 1st year students of the Graphic Design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy initiated and accompanied by the Werker Collective.

I have been fascinated by doodles for some time and wanted to create an archive to understand them better. I started collecting from fellow students, and quickly bumped into the problematic term “doodle”. All ‘doodles’ looked very different, which I also expected, but it seemed like some of the doodles were closer to a drawing. Some had shadows, some seemed pretty detailed or very thought through. So, I was left with the question of what a doodle actually is. Therefore I made a questionnaire in which I asked people to define a doodle. The answers varied, but mainly agreed on that a doodle can be intentional and unintentional at the same time. My piece is an abstract reading and sound piece based on the questionnaire and describing the different doodles that I collected.
