the mind song – StART – Toronto

June 20-26, 2016

traffic light box at intersection of Old Kingston Road and Military Trail

‘Outside the Box’ Program hosted by the City of Toronto – StreetARToronto (StART)

 

I am attempting to use artwork as the medium to explore psyche, consciousness, living presence, state of being. I use simple ‘line games’ to encode the living presence of myself and the environment I am positioned in or the subject that I am focusing on. A formal way to encode ‘vibe’, mood, atmosphere. The maze is easily translatable into data – red and blue – binary. With this data, what information can be discerned, what operations can be performed? I am just starting to explore these questions, uncovering hidden information using the unlimited number of tools available through computer science, programming, and mathematics.
