Currently working on a monogram logo design with the letters SCC. Using Adobe Sketch for the initial exploratory sketches, I work from and build upon layers, revealing only active layers while working. When I made all layers visible at once, I appreciated the resulting compositions, especially the complexity and architectural dimension of the combined overlapping shapes and elements.
Glitchy image preview of my work. I’ve spent so much time in my own world lately, especially behind the computer, I realized our connection is likely capable of growing stronger than some human relationships when social time and work are not properly balanced. With this idea in mind, I imagined the mac as a sentient being, sending me signals through my work as a form of encouragement, assuring me my efforts are actually working through and toward something.
Experimenting with a worn out children’s book from 1976 about an old turtle named Edgemont who rediscovers the wonders and vitality of life when he ventures from his worn out home after years of isolation, I was inspired by Edgemont’s transformation to alter the life and purpose of the worn out book by strategically tearing pages to reveal a new chapter of the story in abstracted layered dimension. The resulting compositions resemble a sort of map or geological cross section of sorts with each layer/page supporting the next in perfect harmony of color, line and texture. After photographing the resulting abstracted topographic landscapes, I decided to present them as a vinyl album mockup, as I plan to eventually pair with a collage and layering of sound samples as Soundscapes to continue the story.
