I made a new website for my art practice, and, while my last show and newest work is textile-based, I thought MetaFilter might like my 2015 exhibition Screen Wall, featuring concrete breeze blocks I designed by (mis)using Photoshop's Content-Aware Fill. [more inside]
I am a theater-maker & conceptual artist based in NYC (and online), and I've finally built up enough projects and confidence to list my highly weird streaming practice on my website, and thought I'd share it with MeFi Projects too. "grillcover" itself is a weird sort of thing: born in 1995 in the primordial swamps of AOL, it has been my internet avatar and proliferated on tons of web spaces since. One reason I finally collected the projects was because this week I've been rolling out my latest stunt: a live solo marathon speedrun of the Mueller Report. (to be clear, that article is "my" write-up lol) You can watch the whole thing on Twitch, or lightly edited versions of Volume I and Volume II, where I omitted the occasional breaks. And if you or anyone you know uses Twitch, I'd love to see you over on my channel! In general, my online practice is all about digging rabbit holes and making odd connections... I hope you enjoy it!
Sol Lewitt created more than 1200 Wall Drawings during his life, developing the concepts behind the drawings and the instructions for creating them on a wall, but leaving the actual wall part to his draftsmen. The central conceit is that Sol's art was in the conception of the work, and leaving the execution to the draftsmen would (1) not change the original and (2) leave open the possibility of joyous happenstance. Well, I'm Sol's newest draftsman! I spent a lot of time finding the original instructions for dozens of Wall Drawings and now I'm coding them in Processing. I'm posting the visual output on this here tumblr. I asked a question about this last year.
