Limitations encourage creativity and I never get bored by the results of this show. Multiple visits always turn up new things I missed.
We discovered that 18 crayons, lined up in a row measured exactly 6 inches.
We played around with some color studies on 18x18 pixel files in Photoshop. Much of our studies were inspired by an old book on color theorist, Joseph Alber's, stained glass work.
In the end we chose an overlaid composition of all of our studies.We completed the piece row by row, carefully matching (as best we could) the colors along the way.
The finished block has some nice heft to it. I sort of like it from the back and the front and the border of wrappers outlining the edges like a frame.
The total work contains 324 crayons. I want to pick it up and use it as a giant mark making tool! Check it out the 6x6x2012 exhibition June 2nd -July 16th!
