An exercise following Sol Lewitt's prompt for Wall Drawing #305

The location of one hundred random specific points. (The locations are determined by the drafters.)

We interpreted this, by making prompts for ourselves to make these 100 marks, giving us directions on how to make a mark, an action before making a mark, or how to feel while making a mark. We chose them, at random, out of a bowl to help randomize the experience. To make them specific, we included a description about each mark,after making the mark on the wall, as well.
