On a small scale, scribbling with a pen or pencil can fill time when bored. But when done on a large scale, the time consuming and repetitive nature of the act itself becomes boring, setting up an interesting paradox: that which is supposed to relieve boredom actually causes it, thus defeating its own objective.
The Scribble Fields use an action that is usually ignored in the art making process and turn it into the focus. A scribble is usually used to test/get a pen working or to occupy time while doing something else. The mark making is calm, spread almost evenly, looping around and around, patiently.
