Just a taste of what I might be producing for a show coming up later this spring. The Economist, seen in infra-red light by my cellphone camera.

Here’s a shot in-studio of the newest Graphic Geography edition, Graphic Galveston Bay, which is a subject I’m doing on commission. For this print I had Salem Metal Fabricators laser-cut .040″ aluminum sheet, and it performed excellently.
Sorry it’s been light, I’ve been really busy. With an opening at the Boston Center for the Arts, for one thing. Here’s a pic of the opening-in-progress: This is the show “Contained” curated by John Pyper, and it’s pretty awesome. I would go see it, it’s centrally located, it’s a nice gallery, and there are
Much of what interests me is the process of averaging, the blending of differences in a population of images or objects into an ur-image or ur-object, something of a Platonic ideal of whatever I’m focusing on. The Commute images are one facet of this. Here’s another: average typefaces. In the images I will post below,
Several years ago, I became a member of the Long Now Foundation, an organization founded by Stewart Brand of the Whole Earth Catalog fame, as well as Brian Eno and various other deep thinkers and futurists. One of the aims of the Foundation is to foster thinking into the concept of “deep time”, or time
Today I went into the print studio and editioned an old plate that hadn’t been properly printed before. Here’s an action shot of the plate for Graphic Chesapeake Bay, which will soon be numbered in an edition of 13.
I finally got some aggregate data for my commutes, which I hoped would allow some definite shapes to coalesce out of the cloud of data. And they have. 3D video up on Vimeo. Here’s a screenshot.
Here’s a large-scale installation concept I have, basically playing with unit lengths of 1, √10 and 10, constructing volumes based around those numbers. This image is a layout shot, with the shading of the blocks corresponding to their depth, light being 1, medium being 3.16, and black being 10. 3D flybys of this idea, either
I’m preparing a large store of commute vectors to get a more volumetric shape out of the scatter plot, so I haven’t been posting them until I get the whole aggregate. However, I decided to record the vectors that result when I do my morning exercises (situps, pullups, that sort of thing). Available here, on
So it was abeautiful day this morning, sun shining, no clouds, breeze, just at 40 degrees—and I decided to ride my bike to get to the T. Freedom! Plus a new round of vectors. Video here. There is no video for the late commute, because the recording app stopped and I didn’t get a complete
