love the noise of life

Primary Secondary Noise became the foundation of a new code. The red, green and blue of Primary Noise is used to encode a capitalised alphabet, via groups of the three colours. The cyan, magenta and yellow of Secondary Noise is used to encode a lower case alphabet, via groups of the three colours. In Love Life and Love the noise of Life the colour groups are presented as three consecutive bands of drizzled paint. The orientation of installation is designed to suggest the flow of letters and words with each letter flowing into the next and continuing from one word to another despite the separation imposed by the use of two panels. Presentation then becomes a factor. Here we see two alternatives, as separate unframed words (Love Life) and as one phrase framed as if a single outcome (Love the noise of Life). I am happy with either presentation, my choice would be finalised depending upon the exhibition space and the needs of the curator.

Should you wish to spend the time, you can begin to understand the colour groupings used to define each letter. Or, you could just enjoy the aesthetic of drizzled code and the balance it creates between signal and noise. The outcomes are shown here in room 1 fake gallery as they await a suitable opportunity to be publicly exhibited.
