I'm building nests (well, scripting/plotting them, of course). Maybe it's a side effect of spending so much time at home. My mother draws nests, has done for longer than I've been around.
I think it started off a couple years ago where I was trying to catch some of the gesture and irregularity of hand drawing a circle. Here, my surgeon-like precision is shown . . . (perhaps I need to lay off the coffee?)
And then the Dynamo sketch to try and get that same jitteryness.
I revisisted the idea a couple months ago trying to do a series
Which, when you get a bunch all together, they just kind of resolved into . . . circlezzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
What is it about nests that are interesting? They're just accumulations of linear elements. (Here's a Dynamo to Inkscape, just playing with line color and width)
But "real" nests have volume and irregularity (Here's a plot which some errors introduced with removing some tape that I thought was less sticky
Nests are also assemblages, little found object sculptures woven out of bits and pieces of things
Have I started using sparkly and shiny pens in my plotter? Why, yes, I have.
