Tesserae-Yellow
After Snow
previous next
The tesserae sequence of drawing installations commenced in the cool north-inflected light of California winter. I would shoot video as I was also pouring paint or water on big swaths of paper stock hung like sheets to dry in the cool morning air. I worked in color sets—tesserae-yellow, tesserae-vermillion—as if to work up and down a chromatic scale, like “scoring” the models in a performance sequence (from BOMB Magazine interview, October 2009). In this very large image, I desired to engulf the architectural presence of the image with a cascading tiling effect overlaying my video stills from Sacramento Delta wind farms, to deliver a visualization of the invisible mathematics of acceleration and feedback.This cascading of tesserae-yellows (toxic or life-giving?) is like a torrent, or turbulence system like multiple views of a Venturi chamber, air rushing through, creating a slipstream in its tail.
