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.
First of all, an interview of me, conducted by Jesa Damora of FunnelCake Marketing, while I was cross-stitching the Charles River basin during the opening at Bromfield on 11 July 2014: Also, some pictures!
I’ll be in a show at Bromfield Gallery next month called Black and White, and have been preparing a large series of work for the occasion. Today I framed everything, so everything’s ready to go. Here’s another quick shot of what’s coming:
It’s been a while, partially because I’ve been busy, but also because the video glitches from earlier have pretty much overwhelmed my poor computer and it tends to crash every fifteen minutes. I finally bit the bullet and ordered a new iMac yesterday. One of the things I’ve been busy with is a project specifically
I’d mentioned it in my needlepoint gallery, specifically on the floss color I used for Australasia and North America, but I realized I’d never posted it before. So, to rectify that situation, here are my averaged colors for the continents: This was created using a NASA true-color cloudless satellite montage of the world, represented in
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
Continuing on my pixellated cross-stitch experiments, allow me to present to you the color palette of the Computer Graphics Array (CGA) card from circa 1985, in cross-stitch form: I’m quite pleased with this little creation. You might remember some other CGA experiments of mine from a while back.
By now everyone knows I’m interested in pixels and gridding visual information. Well, it goes farther than just a flat plane. Using the same pixel layout as I did for my cross-stitch pattern, I have been playing around with using pixels in space, of “voxels”, short for “volume element. (“Pixel” is short for “picture element”,
I posted this image on Twitter a few days ago: So I figured some people might be intrigued to see where this went. Well, it went right here: This is the Mississippi-Missouri River basin, done inverted with medium-gray floss for the background. Of course, I realized I chose the most difficult way of rendering something
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
