Hi, everyone — One of my conceptual video icosacomposites has been selected to be in the PLACE(HOLDER) show at Gallery 263 in September. Greer Muldowney is the juror, she does some great photographic work, including a shared interest with wind turbines.
Last weekend I took a whirlwind tour of Las Vegas for my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday. I didn’t have much time, but I was able to get footage for three composite video pieces. The first was set up on the footbridge over Spring Mountain Rd connecting the Wynn/Encore complex with The Palazzio. I was interested in
Well, it took me a while, but it’s been kinda busy. I’ve been teaching my Extension School letterpress class at Harvard, printing editions, working the day job, and slowly assembling a letterpress cooperative. But last night I finally rendered the icosacomposite videos! I was hoping for three, but I only got footage for two. One
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
Today started off, oddly enough, as something of a clean-up day. I moved the trash bags I’m using as floor protectors for the wet projects, I shifted a bunch of the loose cubes over to where the river production area was, I cleaned up the pixel dice construction site, and collected boxes in one area
Interesting stuff today. I was hoping to have images of all three pixel rivers done, but the Mississippi is being difficult and I needed to re-glue several tributaries, this time using clamps. I should have been using clamps the entire time! But anyway, other stuff still got done. I finished all nine of the Random
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
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.
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
Two icosacomposites from LA, hot off the render queue. The first is not terribly recognizable, but it’s an interesting location for me, personally: the building at Hollywood and Cahuenga (the intersection is known as “Raymond Chandler Square”) is suspected to be the model Chandler had in mind for Phillip Marlowe’s office. I also liked the Pacific
