Architect’s indulgence

Posted on

Architect’s indulgence or a meaningful political statement?
The external appearance of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) building, completed around 2001, designed by ARM, is a black finished facsimile of the white finished Villa Savoye designed by Le Corbusier.

Apparently some critics dubbed this part of the AITSIS building the “evil twin”.

The depth of the cultural references are paint thin. However, the built replica tests the adage of “form follows function”.

Note to myself: You must get out more..15 years late on this one 🙂

Working with what I’ve got

Ceiling series

Working with what I’ve exercise in making images from a random iPhone photo of ceilings during a road trip to Canberra. Making patterns and architectural impressions from mundane snippets using the iPad and iPhone with various apps.

This photo was taken in the lower gallery of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
Created 20 odd images in all, from various ceilings in NSW and ACT . View series

Rainy day experiment

Posted on

Playing with 3D glasses on a rainy day. Tiger fish with dots. Experimenting with various apps to capture layering. Intriguing how far an image can be pushed until its aesthetic visage is lost . That is, when its visual integrity is lost or the image makes no sense to the artist let alone an observer.

Playing with an AI arty app. Heading towards repairing and reworking of fuzzed photos…choice and manipulation of various apps provides a working medium.
