Invariance: Project Synopsis

In studying math, I recognized a distinct visual underpinning to my preferences and style of working. This project is an attempt to provide a characterization of the visual language developed for use in creative work, providing language-oriented structure and operations on physical events. The time-based piece is a description of an experience, a sequence of events common in doing creative work: some initial disturbance, an unstructured drawing phase, the longer drawn out work and discovery, up to some stillness, and then a statement of a resolution. This piece and also an associated set of drawings approach many of the same issues: discrete, language-oriented spaces versus continuous, image spaces, the conflicts that arise between the two, and some proposed solutions.
