Teraflock Anomaly of Unresolvable Coordinates. Mixed Media Relief.

This is the ‘Nth dimensional cluster’, reconfigured and further collapsed. I like that this was originally a 60″x70″ panel of canvas, which has been compressed and condensed to it’s current size, around 36″ wide by 48″ high. I want this to be part of a series of works in a similar vein and methodology, which work together as a wall scale mural, probably between about 20′ to 60′ across, as time and interest allows.

The thing is, it’s really impossible to get the gist of what this is through a screen. We’re depicting inverted nth dimensional topologies, which is hard enough to do, let alone photograph.

This will be glued together this week, note the exposed canvas edges, I like those, I like the idea of a canvas whose conceptual or representatonal attempts have imploded it, but whose ragged edges still flailingly map onto 3 dimensional time/space.

Something else I like about my place, on the hour, you can hear and feel (it shakes the house) the shunting of trains together, through the night.

This is an example of more of the size and scale of what I’m interested in:

Again, a naive depiction of information objects and models in flux, communication, and transition.


In search of robustness, and thus comfort

October 24, 2006

So, last night I slept with some of my work, purely platonic you understand, somewhat after Diane Borsato’s ‘Sleeping with Cake’ project, but more pragmatic than hers in some ways.

and what I’m realizing, more and more, is that I need this work, this body of work to be robust, durable. Munch used to leave his canvasses out in his yard, in the rain and snow, to ‘toughen them up’. I want this work, I want you to be able to roll it up in a tube, and take it on a plane with you, to put it in your hotel room. I want you to be able to throw it off a roof into a pile of rubble, and then pick it up, hose it off, dry it, and stick it right back on your wall, where it continues to look fabulous.

As this point, we can’t quite do that with much of the work. Rest assured, this will change.

This is a small example that I think works really well in beside doorways or in cubicles. I say cubicles especially, because, again, that’s one thing that always annoyed me when I worked in an office, how little the ‘art’ chosen (if any other than motivational posters) reflected the networked and interpenetrated quality of our actions in relation to a global economy. Further, reflected little of how those actions often took place, or did take place, within a highly contextualized and rigorously yet narrowly defined spectrum of operation.
