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
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:
There were some technical snafus, like the batteries for the camera I use for the random pixel grids conking out, so today I don’t have many images. However, I did finish painting the new sets of pixel dice, and sanded the edges of one set of 12:
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.
More fun at the Nave today. I used the heavy rain to soak some paper and play with ink patterns: I did more random pixel grids with the six-level grayscale dice. Here’s a sampling of three of them:
At long last, I got over to the Nave on Powderhouse Blvd for some art time. Everything’s preliminary, everything’s laying groundwork, and everything’s feeling out directions. One of the things that happened was process-oriented data collection. I created random 6×6 grids with six-level grayscale dice:
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 went down to the gallery today and got some pictures of my needlepoint rivers as installed. The show looks great! The opening is on Friday the 11th, please come if you can.
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:
