The Bare Beginnings: The Nave Residency Starts

Tonight I went over to the Nave Gallery on Powderhouse Blvd near Teele Square in Somerville to drop off some supplies for my new residency. Here’s a quick pic of the results: They look a little lost and forlorn, but never fear, great things will emerge. Among the contents are various sizes of wooden cubes,

Skygrid 03: Spring 2013 to Spring 2014

At long last, the skygrid is done. A year ago, I started the process to capture an image of the zenith sky every two minutes from 4 in the morning until 9 at night. Today the Sun crossed back into the sky of the Northern Hemisphere, and the camera on my porch took the last

Rodeo Drive, Whiskey a Go Go, Hollywood & Vine in Composite

Three major landmarks in this selection of icosacomposites. While I was on the prowl, I couldn’t turn down the chance to deconstruct the conspicuous consumption of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, especially the day after Christmas. And it didn’t disappoint. Look for high-end car wheels, fashion dress patterns and lots of shopping bags milling into

And Now, A Sketchbook (!)

Most people who know my practice know that I pretty much mess around on the computer and rarely put pen or pencil to paper unless I’m doing a quick cartoon to calculate angles or just to get something down in physical form. Well, this summer I taught The Book As Art, a summer school class

More Cube Pixel Prints: Four of Four

Before and after class at the Bow & Arrow on Saturday I started messing around with my cubes of wood again. This time I started playing with four groups of four blocks, set roughly in lines, and used some graphite ink I’d mixed earlier in the month. I’m really pleased with the silvery color of

The Equinoctal Picture for the Skygrid

The Sun crossed the ecliptic today at 4:44pm EDT, heading south. My skygrid camera was there to capture the moment, along with a plane flying overhead: I’ll be processing the images soon so we can see the full wax and wane of the daylight hours. Funny thing: it’s no longer an Equinoctal Skygrid. Because it’s

MWRA Wind Turbine Time-Lapses

Early this morning I went out to shoot some time-lapse videos of a wind turbine I really hadn’t explored up-close, the 1.8 MW Vestas at the MWRA pumping station in Everett. It has been a while! Almost nine months since I last shot this turbine, and almost two years since I shot the Northwind 100

Multilayered Holographic Composite – And You’re Invited!

Another composite project, and this one with an interactive component! I decided to do a composite of handwriting samples, and got my summer school class and the regular attendees at the Bow & Arrow’s Open Press Night to supply the first round. I prepared a standard sampling sheet and had everyone write “Multilayered Holographic Composite”
