Here’s a quick jpg of my letterpress/concept/ink drawing project. I’m tentatively calling it Color Terms and Their Emergence in Order of Complexity. It relates to the linguistic observation that languages develop terms for colors in a specific order as the complexity of the language increases. All languages have terms analogous to black, white, and red.
While waiting for my letterpress class to arrive, I’m working on an odd little project that involves the categories of color words in language and the order in which they develop, blind-emboss letterpress, ink wash and black overprint. A pic of the ink wash experiments is attached.
This is on my website as well, but I figured it would be nice to link it here, as well. It’s a time readout made of squares, each of which displays a color corresponding to the color I associate with each number. The top row is the time (HHMM) and the bottom row is the
I just spent a good portion of the day on my Random Red Line project, in which I travel to random stops on the MBTA Red Line subway until my original stop comes up. This ride was cut short by a previous engagement, but I managed 12 random stations in six hours. I… am tired.
So I took some pics of the Clam Box restaurant in Ipswich with my new phone a couple weeks ago, and something went wrong. The jpegs went all wonky and cool. The best part about the whole thing is, the resulting image is interpreted differently by different image programs. Here’s some samples.
“Mindhue” is a reference to my alphanumeric synaesthesia, where different numbers and letters associate with different colors. For example, to me, the “m” in “mindhue” is a orangy red, while the “n” is a much darker red. “D”, on the other hand, is pure orange. “I” is black, whereas “u” is white. “H” and “e”
The image you see in the site header is a site-specific installation I did for my MFA Thesis Exhibition. It is a random walk, drawn on the floor of the gallery using a spinner, a ruler and tape.
Yes, so it’s 2004 all over again. I figured this might be a nice way to update the site more often than never. We’ll see. I’m hoping this will become a decent portal to add to Twitter and Facebook.
