OXONARTWEEKS is an installation of REVADXYZ animations and derived prints. Six lines of enquiry are explored: WINGS FOR FREEDOM, RADICAL LINE STREAM ONE, BATTLE OF IDEAS, FOR COVIMETRY, DUAL SPIRAL STREAM, and RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM. Each component outcome is also available as an individual print, as wall art and on a selection of products.

COVIMETRY PREMIERE

  • 2020
  • exhibition

I am honoured to have my FOR COVIMETRY outcomes represented in this exhibition in Poland. The project is curated by Mark Starel. This recording was made for a Polish TV channel. To have my online animation featured, both in the exhibition and this recording, has made for a pleasant end to a challenging year.

The face mask is used here as a symbol of our times. No masks are being sewn and none coloured by these outcomes. The mask outline is an artistic device and nothing more.

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.

Art Prints

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.

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.

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.

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.
