> hello all
> just a few thoughts to sign off:
> I learned a few things during the residency. a few about drawing with
> the mouse - it's tricky.
> I'm pretty pleased with the results, but not entirely convinced. the
> final image was, for me, a bit of a disappointment (probably due to it
> being the last one, therefore adding more pressure for it to be good). I
> ran out of time working on it this morning (9am deadline). no excuse
> really. alberto guedea's submission completely threw me too. I wish he'd
> submitted more work earlier, it was really challenging. take a look at
> his site: http://a--g.com/18/. really uncompromising, brash digital
> additions to photographs.
> I was pleased to provoke such disparate responses from people, although
> I think I would actually prefere it if people said exactly what they
> felt, even if it was by mistake leon;-) seriously though, leon's comment
> was honest, which is what I wanted.
> I found the debate around whether this was a collaboration or not a
> little irrelevent. we could argue the semantics of this for ages but
> this seemed to be avoiding actually discussing the work. what I wanted
> to know was 'is this a good drawing?' (and discuss what ever that
> means).
> with this project I was tyring to challenge myself with a task that I am
> not used to - namely drawing using my computer and producing such a
> drawing a day. added to this was the challege of using whatever was
> posted to the list in response to the previous days drawing. I think
> this was successful. I was challenged. it was tough. even if you think
> the end results are so-so. artists should be challenged, otherwise they
> become complacent.
> one possible idea that occurred to me as a spin-off from this project
> would be to have a permanent netbehaviour image posting - a constantly
> changing image that keeps being altered and reposted by list members.
> somebody could archive it somehow, or just let it drift and change and
> disappear - always in flux... something to think about?
> favourite submissions included:
> michael szpakowski's paint by numbers 15.07.05 and real-world painting
> 13.07.05
> dion laurent's barcode 08.07.05
> ruth catlow's tv mix 11.07.05
> david rogerson's barry cryer 12.07.05
> anything by lo_y
> alberto guedea's twisted sister 20.07.05
> anything by ana carvalho
> special mention to joachim and marc for their inventive use of other
> people's submissions and lawrence upton for bookending the project. plus
> sim's bcast.
> please don't be offended if I missed you out there. all submissions were
> gratefully received and always a surprise.
> thanks once more to everyone that took the time and effort to
> participate
> I hope everyone enjoyed the 'amusing game'. I think it's important to
> remember that art does not have to be so serious all the time.
