As well as working on A Non-Representative Model for Incomplete Ideas (Intricate Structures #3 and #4) Small Scale Models I’ve also been working on another small scale model of A Theory of Progress. This is a small model of what it will look like on a telephone pole and it’s called A Theory of Progress (An Accurate Model for a Cohesive Distributive Communication System). It took about 3 weeks to make since it required a lot of drying time for the glue. All the pieces are painted with gouache and represent 1″x3″ pieces of pine. After I started it I realized that the dowel that I used is probably too thick to represent a real telephone pole but the idea is the same. I eventually want to make this by finding wood (or buying it if I have to), painting them with bright colors and screwing them to a telephone pole somewhere outside my studio. Here it is after I photographed it. I also re-photographed the A Theory of Progress (Y and X) Small Scale Model as both a horizontal (X) and as a vertical (Y).
