Yesterday's spray-painting exercise was to see if I could do stencil prints from photos of my Svart Höna, solid black melanistic chickens, a heritage breed from Sweden. The trick was to see if I could get their facial features to read even though they are pure black. (Even their bones and the insides of their mouths are black.)
And a hen:
Spray paint on paper. Self-portrait based on a photo by Emma Dodge Hanson.
Produced in an edition of 8.
A self portrait: Stencil , spraypaint on pizzabox. (Getting the hang of cutting stencils for portraiture.)
And a rooster: I think you can probably tell I really loved this rooster.
I have been playing with Peter Stoyko's SystemViz iconography.
SystemViz is a research project by Peter Stoyko exploring how visuals can enhance systems thinking, especially as it relates to inter-disciplinary, collaborative design. Findings are expressed as visual codexes and other applied tools.
