Each drawing in the 'Codification of Intimacy' is based on a chapter, a passage or a key word that Voigt has chosen to distill from Niklas Luhmann's 'Love as Passion' (1982). Voigt began her drawings by first marking those passages in the text that triggered intuitive associations. She then drew free-form shapes suggested by the literary content and, in turn cut out the outlined shapes, gilded them, and replaced them into their original positions on the large paper sheets. The artist then continued to re-work each drawing, using watercolours, pastels and oil crayons.
