FOR COVIMETRY – EXHIBITION

Art Prints

A virtual exhibition, featuring a never ending contemporary algorithmic animation.

The random colour spirals seemed to fit with these COVID times. The spiral representing geometry. Then, combined with the random colour and mark size, representing the spread of the virus outward from the source. I then decided to offset the spiral to represent the asymmetric infection pattern in the population, between age groups in particular. But, these things are just my motivation for constructing these abstract algorithmic serial outcomes.

The animation can be viewed at: https://revad.com/xyz/covimetry.html.

It is (maybe) worth saying, the mask is used here as a symbol of our time and as a tool to add context. I do not make masks and I do not sell masks. Indeed, I question their use as anything more than a symbol of compliance. My anicdotal observation is, they cause the user to touch their face more often, and are just as likely to be counter productive. I make no scientific claims, this is just my own gut (dare I say) common sense feeling. The point is, I do not encourage or condone their use as anything more than a symbol of our time.

DUAL SPIRAL

  • 2020
  • Online animation and print

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.

A nice positive stroke to end the year. The good people at AXISWEB have chosen to FEATURE my SANS A Chromaluxe print on aluminium as one of the highlights of the week (9-15 DEC 2019). The accumulation of small positives helps me continue to do what I do.

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.

A screen grab showing the home page of this virtual exhibition of open edition prints. A snapshot as-of 2019-08-29. As I write there are thirty outcomes available to print and two advertising related cards. There is also a discount code which can be used to obtain a substantial discount (while it remains operative). The size and substrate is entirely your choice, but I do recommend the metal print option for all of these outcomes, and the larger the better. As ever, my current print partner web site can be reached via the forwarding URL: http://print.revad.com. If you don’t want to buy, you can still enjoy the view!
