I have rather neglected this space, since April. Much artwork has been made in that time. I have set myself the task of bringing this space up to date by the end of 2021. So, if you are interested, please keep an eye on progress.
This plugs the site into my use of the handles: revad, codedimages and revadcodedimages on social media and other relevant virtual spaces. Maybe, I should place a map of those spaces on here?! Another task gets added to the list.
My print shop at REVAD.PIXELS.COM has been pruned back to a small selection of prints from current projects. A review suggested it is not a viable space to act as a print archive. Too much investment in time required to keep it current. This is how the shop front looks today.
Behind the shop front, you will find four public collections. The number of available prints has dropped, from a peak of 700+, to around 20. As ever, if you see anything of mine anywhere and would like a print, get in touch via the contact page at REVAD.COM.
This month has seen more outcomes from my generative code enquiry. These outcomes have manifested themselves as social media posts on Instagram, a selection of large format prints at FOR YOU, and as kinetic virtual installations at REVAD.XYZ. I derived a MONOCHROME SPIRAL STREAM from the RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM. I started to explore a SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM, but there is much more to do in that direction. All the time, with the first signs of Spring, I have been encouraged to think ahead to how I might use the analogue studio this year. As is usual for me, I started out by looking back to what has been achieved in previous years, and specifically what happened last year. I am planning and looking forward to what might be achieved on the studio TRANSIENT INSTALLATION WALL in 2019.
This month’s photo montage hints at this mix of looking back and looking forward.
January this year has been mostly about writing code. Continuing an exploration of the Processing environment as a tool for making long series of coded outcomes. In the photo montage we have: two outcomes from the CONNECT 2 series, two outcomes from the RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM (RSS) series, one outcome from the SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM series, and yours truly with a studio projection from the online installation of a RSS. I say ‘a RSS’ and not ‘the RSS’ because each presentation of the RSS outcome is unique. Indeed each time an RSS is run it produces a unique stream.
So, if you click over to: http://revad.xyz/radical-spiral-stream.html and start your own stream, you will be the only person to ever experience that particular stream. Please screen capture a unique outcome and use it for your own – not for profit – use. Share your capture online and link it back to the source of the stream. I would love to see the samples from your stream. All of these lines of enquiry will continue beyond January.
