Colorway

Wedding Swatches

How two nerds refine the palette of their wedding party--she looted Home Depot, I swiped an Ott-Lite from work. We ended up with a handmade swatchbook each, for all us up front. A note to those readers: no color here is true, await your packages in the mail.

(Wedding voyeurism, it's one of my favourite things.)

Paige,

Thanx, we hope to at least impress ourselves...

As far as further documentation goes, I'll do my best. I've found though that my energy is down lately--that less and less of my life is making it online. The wedding is a bit of that--far more work than I ever could have predicted. It's insane--truly.

We just got back from a whirlwind trip to West Virginia to taste cake and spec flowers, both of which went well--neither of which I thought to shoot or share, sorry.

Perhaps some pix of the location and the making of the save-the-dates will satisfy...

A good way to practice telepathy is to help people realize they've dropped something.

Claim Check 8

So soggy when I found it that it nearly fell apart--I've been reviving it between blotter, under stones.

Digitints

Aquatint - Small
Please view the full-scale image as well.

I've been itching to make aquatints again.

There's something primordial and enveloping about the consistent depth of tone that I keep seeing in other textures, most underfoot--that I keep wanting to escape to.

Until back behind copper and acid, floating enamel and rosin, simple filters will have to suffice.

Did you make this using noise filters, soft squares, some blur and coloration? let me know how you did this.

One Step Closer

We are pleased to announce that all CoverFlow technology and intellectual property was recently sold to Apple. It has been incorporated into the latest version of iTunes. Please visit www.apple.com/itunes.

Good Work

LED Throwies

Just now, upon watching the video record of Graffiti Research Lab's first project, I sincerely thought to myself, "This, is beautiful".

Then immediately afterward, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Which I think I meant quite literally--I'm intimate with all the materials and ideas being drawn from here, I could talk Flavin and neodymium, open-source and installation, all day. The elements at work just never coalesced into this manifestation for me.

Thank god they did for fi5e and Resistor. This is inspiring work--the kind of easy brilliance that makes me proud to have found my profession. Thankful too, that communities like Eyebeam/Openlab and Instructables exist and are beginning to thrive.

I might also add, playing off of Sony's Bravia ad is shrewd. Perhaps more intelligent however, is the choice of location--Jim Kempner Fine Art on the corner of 23rd and 10th, an icon in many ways.

Blogger Mick thought:

This is so totally you. Does the Kemper Fine Art building have a ferro metallic wall? Presumably...nice audio too (old school folkie).

So totally cool...throwies. You could make a take off (stickies) with velcro or duct tape or some such thing for other surfaces.

Residual Influences

Therapy Sessions

My primary machine is an aging laptop. Consequently, I only ever have a small portion (17.89 GB) of my music collection on it--storage issues. So, today I was taking a look at what I was missing out on (the other 80 Gigs that live in an external), and moving some things around, when I came across a record I should have remembered recently.

I knew those dots felt right for a reason.

In other music news, Phil K.'s Y4K has been replaced as my favorite du jour. Lusine's Serial Hodgepodge, something I slept on for over a year, is this week's commute theme.

The second day we took the regional rail through a dry rolling countryside--to Avila. Two of the many crosses there.
