Visual Arts entry signage concept

VERY preliminary studies for entry wall/marker/signage for School of the Arts, CSUF.

Concept of looking at structure AS sign, as opposed to structure WITH sign.......

Several structural layers are not turned on in these views....

Alice 2.0 goes through quite a different Looking Glass [LCD]

Working on the Digital [A]l[I]ce, with full animate mechanisms, with Joey Dhindsa and Rob Mothershed. Teaser mode.

The project will hopefully be complete this year, fully rendered with some serious animations showing the redesign and mechanical dance she produces.

On the Boards...

New hybrid hand drawings [ink on mylar] on the boards at the moment. Only 3 layers in... many, MANY more to go:

Systems harvesting system [SHS].

Exploration of the zone of occupancy in the designation/denotation of "alteration" within old school architectural drawings/CDs

Brothel bits...

As always, vertical circulation inquiries.

Liminal Fragmention

Windows Paint on a TabletKiosk Tablet PC

Abandoned tower study- vortex placements... exploring the breakdown of old and new program/structure/ suggested parallels of inhabitancy and movement.

The parasite attaches as external program... to become its own host a the innards are reconfigured, often violently, to repurpose the status of relationships in a vertical city app. One imagines that software drives the attraction and opens the administrative circuits for the "introduction"... but the hand takes over in the frenzy of overlapping diagrammatic explorations.

Old TnA project- study model for louver system, main office.

Water and time

On a rare rainy southern california day... snapped an iphone [an old one alas] of a very old project of mine... little known if at all. The water and overcast sky rendered this in a new light, so to speak.....

Fluid Tissue

Studies [on my new TabletKiosk Tablet PC] for a fluid tissue parasite. Looking at what might happen when the non-static tissue representation begins to erode and peel away the secondary surface of the drawing membrane.

Data collection tentacles... surface splicing... sheet surface scarring... duration fragmentation....

The device that draws... the machine that records the information- as it is distributed/as it is absorbed/as it impregnates the surface/and as it becomes new topographical information to be drawn back into the system.

The organic and temporary nature of the system- the relationship of the etching system and the residue...drawing. scanning. digesting. redrawing. spatializing. reformatting. I am intrigued by the drawing informing the hand, as much as i am the hand informing the drawing. Or what happens when the drawing draws back.

inside : outside

A "twist" of the relationships between the inherent inside surface-zone and the exterior envelope-area....

An experiment for a domestic inversion project

Convergence Point Residue

The leftover bits. The crust from a sandwich. The residue at the bottom of an empty latte. The accretive stuff on the bottom of the bristles of an old toothbrush. The construction lines in an [old school] drafting of an architectural situation. The parts that don't make it in.

All the tasty goodness of the stuff that got passed over. for lack of focus. Or, perhaps, from over-saturation of foci...

Press Release- Mechudzu

Hello all- RIEA has just issued the press release for my monograph:

publisher info:


I am very much looking forward to its release, and hope that it delivers its message in a palatable serving.It's only 120 pages, so perhaps we will call it a "minigraph".
 This has been a long time in the making....

Germinal Cosmology[s]

The next wave explores the relationships between the alpha and omega situational structuring... of examining the Blink with the Gaze.

The effects of  drawing residue rendered manifest in a dimensional concept bucket. The spirit of the membrane impregnation will be evolved using the structural fluidity of the blockage of light.

This is the beginning...

Teaser- not making the cut

RIEA submission fast approaching.... A teaser shot- this one will be left on my cutting room floor. A shout to Chris Wormald for the photography of this ancient project.....
