Contextual research and analysis

For the collection assignment,  I found screen printed posters, poems and magazine covers that are either using the similar colours as mine or codes.

Object 1: Stage Set For A Riot by Danny Jauregui, (2007) is a artwork that was made by ash and graphite on paper. It makes me feel like the information in the barcodes are all  busy crossing through each other, as if they are crossing a road in a hurry, not caring about others’ privacy and personal space, bumping and crashing into each other.

Object 2: Normal, like rapid language by Normals, (2012) is a collection of works that are lying right at the intersection of design and fiction. Sometimes can be visual, other times can be published, video-based, musical, or even functional. They do pixel bending, ink on paper, and algorithmic superstitions as well. Rapid Language Application is a web-based system for learning Rapid Language basics. This first version was consist of a 150-word dictionary of the online most used words, as well as semantic operators and directions, and provides one with the possibility of building basic [Roll + Lettering] strings.

Object 3:Hole print by Brendon Monroe, (2014) is a printed artwork. Brendon Monroe is an artist who has graduated from the Art Centre in Pasadena, and he has been painting, drawing, and making sculptures that demonstrate a mythical world that is inhabited by paint-chip and trash-laden life form which scattered with human figures. He thinks that studying smaller environments can help us understand the greater world around us, Monroe sets out to create this imaginary world. Although he has self-published a wonderful run of miniature artist-books (Brendan Monroe, 2008), this is the first overall monograph of his work. There are more than 70 paintings, 15 sculptures, and  some installation shots. This work especially attracted me because of the same idea that he has. Using only lines to create a image that looks like 3D contoured landscape.

In my opinion, object 4: A World View by Mary Ellen (Bottom) Solt, (1968) and object 5: 1975 issue 10 cover design by Heinrich Fleischhacker are somehow connected. They are both printed and published, but also have a system. The poem only used “o”, “i” and “l”, the magazine cover only used Binary numeral system. Binary numeral system  is a numbering system that represents numeric values using two unique digits (0 and 1). Mostly can be seen on computing devices use binary numbering to represent electronic circuit voltage state, which considers 0 voltage input as off and 1 input as on. I remember my father talking about this when I was younger. He said “There are only 2 numbers in the world of computer, but they have endless of possibilities.”
