- How can the hand of the artist be represented within a digital framework?
As with any medium, the means of expression lay dormant until moved into motion by creative intent. As an objective medium, the means of digital production provide new paradigms for such intent. The unification of design process and finished product is a characteristic unique to digital production as the form emerges from the process, rather than a process designed around a final form.
- The structural integrity of the column relies upon the stacking of serial planes. In a Gestaltian sense, the group is greater than the sum of the individuals. The decision to use acrylic is based on the transparent nature of group process. The color change from clear to blue acrylic and interior illumination highlights the author-shapes and spreads light throughout the column. With creative collaboration, the potential of the individual is amplified and conducted through the collective whole as ideas are multiplied and refined.
