“The idea becomes a machine that makes the art.” Sol LeWitt
While at the Recurse Center (RC), I was introduced to the work of Conceptual Artist, Solomon “Sol” LeWitt. Sol believed that the idea behind the art was more important than its execution. His set of wall drawings were defined as seemingly simple instructions that other artists implemented and brought to life. These instructions were detailed enough to describe the work, while leaving enough ambiguity that ensured each piece would be a bit different each time that it was executed.
I presented an overview of the project and a demonstration of the app at the June 2019 installment of RC’s Localhost Lightning Talks series.
