International Art Residency

  • August 6, 2017

I'm doing an artist residency at the Banff Centre fall 2017. (Artists, curators, critics, writers etc. from all around the world attend the Center to develop their work). I'm going to be doing the first stage of an infinite sculpture that is also a painting. That is also an installation. That is also an organism, a time crystal, a node, a mob, music, and a virus.

LOOM CODE: Pretty Rainbow Over Farm

"Pretty Rainbow Over Farm", 96" x 60" (8" down to 6" relief on the 4 curves), oilstick on shaped aluminum. K.I.A., 2012. A glorious double-rainbow captured over a beautiful country farm, as information. The photo was translated via email (by a helpful textile company located in the eastern-bloc) into extensive Jacquard-card code.
