week 48: beyond the frame

Imagine beyond the frame…

– from the Field Conditions exhibit, 2012
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

My exploration of waves hasn’t felt quite right.  I somehow pushed out all traces of humanity by focusing on subject matter originally inspired by the concept that being connected is what humanity is all about.  So I’m exploring ways to bring back a human element to my work.

I’m starting with an idea to draw a field of starts inspired by an image I saw at the Field Conditions exhibit at the SFMOMA. This idea has also brought me back to the Processing programming language which allows me to avoid having to hand draw millions of stars in the sky (like Vija Celmins has patiently done in some of her work –> see here!)
