Orderly Disorder

October 17, 2011

There’s a certain pleasure in making the pencil/white grids, even if they aren’t successful, because they’re so simply the result of a few simple rules and acts.  Some don’t succeed because the pencil marks are too similar or too different, or because there’s too much or not enough mark-making.  What I like the most happened in the following images: 36 identical marks on 4″ cardstock, which should for a pattern but does not because of the skew in scanning them and the orientation of the individual cards.  There are a few cards in each that I would rather have turned a different way in retrospect, but another part of the appeal is not knowing when drawing how the final image will look.
