First Actual Day at the Nave

Drawing, Random Processes, Residency

At long last, I got over to the Nave on Powderhouse Blvd for some art time. Everything’s preliminary, everything’s laying groundwork, and everything’s feeling out directions. One of the things that happened was process-oriented data collection.

I created random 6×6 grids with six-level grayscale dice:

PixelDiceShot

Here’s an image of the first ten runs of the random pixel grid:

Pixel-Dice-36-Concat-01

I tossed 64 black cubes at a circle drawn on a piece of paper to see what would happen. Then I did it again and again:

PixelPitch

I took a 2x2x2 pixel cube and started unfolding its constituent pieces into disparate shapes that still retain the same volume:

Cubic-Permutations-002

And I dribbled ink on a crumpled piece of paper and then made it rain with a water spritzer to see what kind of flow networks would result:

PaperConfluences

We will see where these starting points will take me in the next few weeks.
