net.weight: spatial ideas 001


thinking about the internet as a spatial entity with it's own mass, size and shape - and trying not to visualise it merely as a network of interconnected points - is difficult. i'm looking for a progressive approach to objectifying the internet. one that takes into account it's sculptural properties...

hi michael

yep, i take my time with them.
the first one (twenty-four) began mid last year and i would return to it every now and then and work on it a little bit.
the others were added in the intervening months.
more should follow.

DISCUSSION

new work - television


http://www.counterwork.co.uk/television

images created by digitally compositing and manipulating television stills from 'high quality' american tv shows.
the images are reworked over a prolonged period using only black, white and erase. form and composition are derived from overlaps between image layers.
an attempt is also made to reduce the images down to the barest essentials - leaving only traces of the former imagery.
