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.

So, I don’t think they’re crazy good, but they’re alright. I’d like more in this style but larger, as a larger frame of reference is more condusive to a sense of collapsing, imploding and decentred space. THe ‘nice’ thing is the detail, which it’s pretty hard to see at this detail. Oh, Number 8 is already taken.

I don’t know if I mentioned this, but I live in an honest to god cliche of an artis’s garret. No heat. I swear. A full on half demolished top floor of a house, where I live because a) I have space to work in, and b) it’s free for the next two months.
This is just more work in progress.

Again, I think part of the aim is to put together a large set or body of the ‘new’ work, and then load that onto a ‘new’ site, and then see if people are interested in that work (either galleries or clients).
It’s not really a plan.

This will be finished sometime this week, in the meantime, I think this might be finished. We’ll see.

So, seem to be making some progress…
These are just components, parts, but when the edges are finished, and they’re put together, I should have my first fully mobile connectogon piece. Something you can literally roll up and take with you when you’re staying in a hotel some place.
That idea I especially like. That instead of travelers being forced to submit to the photocopied and frame dreck that adorns so many hotel rooms, that they’d be able to put something up that meant something to them.

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.
