Today I started working on A Theory of Progress (An Accurate Model for a Cohesive Distributive Communication System) which is a sculpture made using colored pieces of wood that are then attached to a telephone pole. The idea is to make a semi-permanent sculpture outside that functions as both graffiti and as art. I had originally thought that it would be great to build the sculpture slowly to let it evolve over a couple of years by adding new pieces to it every now and again. Unfortunately I’m leaving my studio soon so it has become necessary to build the sculpture rather quickly in order to achieve a quicker final result. Today I painted some long pieces of wood with Glossy Blue Enamel and Glossy Yellow Enamel. I painted strips of wood that I have in my studio that are probably never going to be used. I used paint that I had in my studio already that I used for From At the Gates of Dawn, From Dawn To Dusk and New Dawn Fades. I also have a can of Glossy Red Enamel and I plan on buying some green and orange. Here is a photo of the painted strips in my studio.
