We have all been rasterized and reduced to pixels that live on each other’s screens.
Many of these mass production methods have been recycled back into the fine arts world, see Roy Lichtenstein and Chuck Close . . .
And I got to playing around with a simple method in Dynamo to take regular photo inputs and convert them to the familiar CMYK color space for physical printing
And then making more of a physicality or requirement for presence to really see the drawings at multiple levels
And trying to get a range of drawings, one that is seen from a distance, on that is seen in extreme close up and all the ranges in between
And then thinking about how to you go about sharing this experience with people with whom you aren’t physically present.
Production of these images created an issue, usually you see pen plotters at high speed
But the reality is that they
So I went about experimenting with a kind of cursive script to create variable density of lines
Trying continuous and discontinuous drawing styles
The first tries were a bit blocky
Revit is really the only decent output method I've found, with each color layer having many thousands of NURBS curves, or single curves with thousands of control points.
But then starting to get the idea of multiple paintings in one, and also the speed of the more continuous line
Pushing the method a little further, this one is done with a single continuous 3rd degree NURBS curve spiraling through 12,000 control points
