These magnificent artwork called “each line one breath”, is a series of meditative, he calls them morphogenetic freehand drawings.
Franzen starts with a straight line all the way down a page, and then slowly draws another line beside it. He tries his best to copy the line exactly by controlling his breathing. But inevitably there are tiny imperfection, instead to correcting that “mistake”, he amplifies them by copying them with each new line, and the drawing begins to reveal itself like a curtain.

“line are everywhere to find, wherever it is, sound and light, water and dunes, growth rings and lines of trees, skin and stratum, tree formation in the forest, the falling rain, the grass luffing in the wind." -Franzen
