Got some images of the process I’m using for creating the artwork for the New Gallery Concert Series later this month. The concert will include a piece of music based on an arcane part of graph theory, and I took that as a staring point. More info coming soon, but have some images to peruse.
I finally got the photos of the paper-drawn random walks from my show *RANDOMIZE in March normalized and collated into a catalogue PDF. You may check it out here. A slideshow will be up shortly. Here’s an interesting little bit: all 60 walks embedded on each other. Since the patterning is pretty uniform, then the
Looking through all my posts, I realized I’d posted a whole bunch of the time-lapse walks and various other walks, but not any earlier walks. How silly of me! Let me post a quick gallery of the walks I’ve done in the past. Here are the Field Walks, which I performed using 300′ of nylon
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
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:
I’m certain that everyone was as curious as I was to see what would happen if I ran all the random walks in the Random Sketchbook together as a single path. Well, good news! I put them all in Photoshop and joined them end-end-end as best as I could, and came up with one of
