Well, it took me longer than expected to cap off the residency posts with some shots of the closing reception, but better late than never. Here are some lovely images shot during the closing by Rebecca Philio, who has shot several receptions for the Nave Gallery through the years. Myself and Jesa Damora at the
I finally got back to the gallery yesterday, but I was at the Bow & Arrow Press for Open Press Night afterward, so I didn’t get to process things until now. A big portion of yesterday’s work was 100 Random Pixel time-lapse videos, which I present here: Time-Lapse 09 uses the same rules as the

With Labor Day and various other stuff happening, I haven’t been able to get over to the Nave until late this afternoon. Alas, I was only there for a couple hours, mostly to make more repairs to the Mississippi and to lay the other two out on a different support system. The plinth wasn’t quite

I spent most of the day fixing up the 3D pixel Nile, 3D pixel Yangtze, and piecing together the last bits of the 3D pixel Mississippi. Here’s a quick shot of the Nile, resting on a table: I also constructed five ephemeral Random Pixel Objects and three physical Random Pixel Objects. I forgot to snap
Some new things, some tidying up, some experiments. First of all — the soundtrack for this residency so far, courtesy of the 5-disc CD changer at the Nave:

More fun today at the Nave Gallery. First of all, here are the results of my ink-blot flow pattern experiments: I’m not sure if I’m thrilled with these or not. I will continue the experimentation, however.
I’d been working on them piecemeal for a while, but I had the chance to really sit down and work on some needlepoint pieces while I was at Somerville Open Studios on May 3rd and 4th. Here’s a gallery of what I’ve been working on. This is the analemma, the shape that the sun traces
Another iteration of the Multilayered Holographic Composite, with help from my Graphic Design intro class at NHIA: It’s starting to coalesce around the basic letterforms, although “Multilayered” is fuzzier than the other words because there’s a much larger spread of word lengths between different handwriting styles. If you’d like to be included, please, feel free!
I’m certain that everyone was as curious as I was to see what would happen if I ran all the random walks in the Random Sketchbook together as a single path. Well, good news! I put them all in Photoshop and joined them end-end-end as best as I could, and came up with one of
Last summer one of my students gave me two lovely stab-bound sketchbooks. I normally don’t use sketchbooks, but it was a very thoughtful gift, and I figured I should probably put them to use. I already described the process I used in the SIXTY sketchbook, so now I am here to unveil the second one:
