4 Color CMYK Process Poster
No I am not dead. I just had a little architecture job to take care of but that's finished up. This past memorial day I got around to printing another process poster, properly this time. It was Monday afternoon and I threw a collage together with some stuff I had lying around. Here is a little about where the various parts came from:
Continuing the starchitecture desctuctication kick I had this image of a fire at Zaha Hadid's Opera House in Guangzhou.
This was combined with some beautiful open trusses that used to be the view out the studio window. This has since been roofed over unfortunately but I heard that the developer who bought the property intended to flip it and had already poured foundations for a 12 story luxury condo building here. I should count my blessings since it was not approved, as this whole Greenpoint Pencil Factory complex is landmarked. Too bad the "Pencil Factory Lofts" was approved which eliminated my view of the river with it's sample-color-swatch-board-of-brick design. Genius. They must be having funding troubles with the economic meltdown as what was originally a frantic pace has slowed to single CMU blocks being raised by rope and pully one at a time.
Rounding out this collage was a part of a previous collage i made to illustrate an essay for Marco Frascari. The 'building' on the water is a drawer of prosthetic eyeballs and the background is a wiring schematic for a Commodore 64.
This drawing was part of a series I made while living in Pittsburgh. The '02' was from a spanish-word-a-day calendar but I had crossed out the word so I evidently didn't learn anything.
