DUAL SPIRAL is a Processing sketch, an online P5js script and a series of large format prints. Each visit to the DUAL SPIRAL STREAM results in a unique presentation of two overlapping noisy colourful random spirals. A series of fixed perspective moments in time have been captured and reprocessed into large format prints, a small selection of which are currently available at PRINT.REVAD.COM.
These examples are shown as 60 inch wide metal prints installed in a contemporary space. Every print is available on a substrate of your choice and a size to suit your need.

PRINT.REVAD.COM has a limited offering of large format prints. Available on a substrate of your choice and a size to suit your need.
The exhibition home page shows a random animated STREAM, made using the colours of ARTWEEKS, with the colours coded using REVAD’s colour alphabet. The animation is built using #P5js.
The [STUDIO] page shows a grid of works, photographed while installed on REVAD’s studio gallery wall. You will find a collage of drawings made in various media (marker pen on paper, pixels on screen, bungee cord on frame, and recorded as #Chromaluxe prints on aluminium.
The [NOTES] page shares two writings made while installing the exhibition. REBOOT is a comment on the coronavirus lockdown. PHILOSOPHY is a statement of one perspective on REVAD’s art practice.
There is also a free print quality catalogue (flyer) available via the site menu [CATALOGUE (PDF)] button. Please download and print for your own record of the exhibition.

Four 24 inch square Chromaluxe die sublimation prints on aluminium, installed in my studio (fake) gallery. These high quality durable prints were sourced from my chosen print partner at: PRINT.REVAD.COM. As can be seen here, they are ready to exhibit. Maybe sometime in 2020 if the right opportunity presents itself. Otherwise, I am happy to have them in my own collection.
As I said in my earlier post “the chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space”. If any funds are generated these are ploughed back into making new enquiries and outcomes. My practice is mostly exhibited in the virtual space of the web. The very occasional real-world exhibition is more of an accident than a goal. If a connection made leads to a worthwhile venue, then so be it. Making a sale is not the goal either, this is why I describe my art as FOR ME. But, this doesn’t preclude it from being FOR YOU too.
A lot of effort has gone into creating and curating this space. I treat it as an online exhibition space. The chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space. Every little helps though. I am more interested in how these different lines of enquiry sit together in the space, how I can introduce new work and cycle out those outcomes that have served their time. It never sits still for very long. Everything is transient.
Fourteen outcomes, mixed by pairing over seven days, via the installation of eighty four consecutive posts on Instagram. Exploring Instagram as an online exhibition space. Exploring how the space can be manipulated to harmonise different outcomes. Exploring the alternative perspectives available to the exhibition viewer. Exploring how these perspectives can be shared on other social platforms.
