    November 14:   I follow the blog of Anatol Knotek which is where I saw a piece he made using matches. I was intrigued by the process and the smoke residue left behind, so I tried it myself to see what would happen.

    November 15:   Some early morning snap shots of yesterday’s experiment sans matches. Though the process was very fun, I was more intrigued by the pieces after they had been snuffed out and how the smoke crept up the canvas board and left a gestural mark.

    December 4:   The result of yesterday’s freezing. The hardest part was selecting which photos to show, there were so many interesting textures and compositions.

    December 5:   My spicy experiment melting. I wanted to photograph it melting in the morning light before I went to work, so I dragged my white drafting table into the living room, where I tried to expedite the process by pouring warm water over the ice. I could not quite get the table level, thus I made a watery mess.

    December 6:   I have a terrible stomach virus and not much energy to make something new, so I took another look through my photos from yesterday and zoomed into to create some new compositions.

    December 7:   An idea for a new project, still using water as the basis, but adding some color in.

    December 8:   I froze yesterday’s experiment. As it froze, I gradually added more color and eventually added a whole new layer of water on top of the already frozen layer. I believe this technique lead to the pockets of color frozen within, which revealed themselves as it melted. Not entirely sure where I am going with this yet, but I am curious to see where it will lead.

    October 22:   I’ve been going a little paper crazy lately and had to put my new notebook project on the back burner so that I could play with this idea. I find it fascinating how the words and letters change drastically when the paper is folded, and change even more so depending on the perspective.

    May 16:   These lines just keep getting better and better. Today I cut one of the pages into strips and played with it on my photocopier; this is what emerged.
