drawings in the 70s

first drawings from software. randomly tiled geometry à la anni albers in a series of eight pieces, only one still existent. red and black inks from felt pen.

since the 70's, creation of line works mediated on a small plotter. programs composed in rocky mountains basic direct calculations of an early small hewlett-packard lab computer. this produces instructions that direct the plotter to draw the proper geometry. one program, one drawing; in retrospect this was slow and small but effective.

influence: bauhaus art, benoit mandelbrot's self-similarity papers.

the individual, man as a man, man as a brain, if you like, interests me more than what he makes, because i have noticed that most artists only repeat themselves.
