Framed last three small of T.E.D.

October 1st, 2013

Pick up the last three small drawings of twenty eight days.
that makes13 as the grand total.
I put them on the floor/wall of the studio.
I am interested to see how this plays out with the last large one. After all the rendering of detail how will the affect the large one. I believe there will be a difference in the large one I’m doing now and the first one. Not only in “quality” but also in quantity.

Swallow exported

September 24th, 2013

I have exported all four channels of edited sound piece swallow. All four channels have been edited to exclude any distracting noises. I have excluded sounds that r not sourced from the tattoo gun itself. For example noises caused by a moving chair, a clunk of a arm hitting a table, any verbal audio from one of the tree participants in the project.

I will have to play each channel back on my audio equipment to get an idea of quality and ascertain if any further editing needs to be done.
After a few quality checks ill proceed with experimenting/ figuring out the best way to present the audio and ultimately swallows final form.

Starting detail

September 24th, 2013

Toady I started to map out more of the secound large drawing from the twenty eight days project.
My first thought is to change the name of the project.

Mapped out more, makes sense. Seems not to be as much of a struggle. That said. I started detail, just to get a better sense of the drawing.
Good day for sure.
I’ll put in an image Tuesday.

It was very tough at the beginning. Orientating myself in the drawing, keeping track of where I am, now the issue is focusing on a particular location. I find myself wondering around in the drawing. No detail, tightening the mapping of the subject matter.



Found text on armouring performance

September 18th, 2013

Dug this out of a sketch book.
Instructions on how I came up with the formal aspects of the print/ tattoo.
Actually made me consider show a sketch I have and the instructions for the prints.
This could add an interesting dimension, or help exposé the prints. If I want that.
Never the less defiantly will do more digging around for info on armouring.
Found this on my web page.
I think combining this statement and the text from the sketch book may be shed light on what I was up to.

Bite and Burn, encore
MSVU Art Gallery, Halifax, 10 January 2009
Instructions for Printmaker Dax Morrison and Tattoo Artist Amber Thorpe
The shape of the tattoo is determined by its position on the body.
The design will be applied to my right chest.
The size of the tattoo is determined by the number of prints in the edition and the duration of the printing process.
Impressions are to be taken from my freshly tattooed skin in an edition of ten. Black ink will be used because of its stability as a pigment.

Details of armouring

September 18th, 2013

These r details of three that I choose.
I believe the framing will “pop” them, emphasizing their individual beauty.




I guess I have to choose

September 18th, 2013

I spent more than three hours trying to figure out what to frame.
Some r good. Some r very good. Some r great in sets. Pain in the ^%#.
So I managed. I choose 8. How i will show the 8 is still debatable. It seems one group of three and one group of five. On Seperate walls? Who knows.
I’ll figure that out latter. The import part is the prints work very well. The prints defiantly function past the performance, more than an artifact. Beautiful, bold, strange not awkward.
Defiantly not conventional, but they are not showy or ego driven.

The framing is simple, understated. Well done. I will get then in a month.


Can U choose

September 16th, 2013

Time to figure it out.
Dead line – two hours.
