bloxBuildV.2

Relentless directional pursuit

Left to right movement across the field of vision,
visual field.

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

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

how to interact with a bloxBuild

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 ‘stuff’ bloxBuilds are made of

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
  • Interactive

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
