Horizontal Cash Flow
Money and Hands
Relentless directional pursuit
Left to right movement across the field of vision,
Appearance of some type of disruption,
Surface is a build up, a layering of blox. Broken up tumbling blox.
the hands appear to resemble a school of swimming fish
Red left hands dominate and direct the flow of other colored left hands.
bloxBuild v.1, ‘a visual arrangement’ that seeks form as a composition of blox
composition = rules of arrangement
- Change is the only constant
- Representation of movement
- Capture ‘momentary flow’
Physical break-up of the picture plane
with some elements rotated 90 degrees in space forming a real 3-d image in real space/time
tension between image elements
hands are digital images
moneys are real/concrete images
Velcro flows throughout the overall composition/arrangement,
uniting the blox into a whole/totality
Change is a fundamental element of a bloxBuild.
A bloxBuild is transitory and subject to change. Change occurs through audience/user participation.
Participation allows users:
- To follow their own association pathway
- To experiment with building their own cognitive structures
- To link their actions with internal emotional and identity needs
A bloxBuild has a flexible structural architecture.
This flexibility allows for the rearrangement of a finite set of elements. The process of rearrangement, of generating multiple versions, or ‘versioning’, is an essential characteristic of a bloxBuild.
A bloxBuild is easy to work with.
blox use the hooks and loops of Velcro to connect together. The coupling of blox creates a composition called a bloxBuild.
Blox, the basic components of a bloxBuild, are various sizes.
A bloxBuild is formed through the composing of blox into an arrangement.
Conceptually blox are:
- An instance of an imageObject, a class of objects that exist in the space between painting and sculpture.
- Beyond easel painting
Physically blox are:
- The base material is Styrofoam building insulation
- Vellcro, collage and acrylic paint applied to the surface form an allover image
- Velcro is used for the coupling of blox to each other and the wall mount
