At the core of my work is creating forms from often simple components. Whilst these parts are seemingly ordinary, the power comes from when you combine them in hopefully interesting ways.


On the far left is a simple straight line. Using a little system I made I then add some noise to that line, though keeping the top and the bottom exactly the same as before. It’s important for me to have this fine grain control, rather than just allowing chaos to take over.


There’s something interesting there, but I think it becomes something else when I make multiple copies of that line whilst also adding some rotation with each copy. Now it seems to have volume. Maybe there are things to explore down this route…
