This mix is a part of my current experimental electronic project, Uncool. Loops and drum machines built around samples of field recordings from my telephone. Shoutouts to the Weed Island Yacht Club and Funk's Instagram story feed :)
The Worst Chair Maker is an experimental sculptural and public art project.
In June 2017, Rob started building chair-shaped sculptures using found wood. He had no prior woodworking or furniture designing experience. He explores the alleyways of northeast Portland collecting found wood scraps and rummages through the Rebuilding Center in search of their very worst cuts, brings them back to his studio, and assembles them quickly and crudely into “unsittable chair-shaped paintings” before placing them in public spaces as sculptures.
My bike has a flat tire and I haven't fixed it yet, so I've been taking the bus to work. For two weeks I did one Automatic Drawing every morning by holding a ballpoint pen to a blank piece of paper and, without looking, allowing the movement of the bus to dictate the movement of line. In the end I have this collection of scribbles: a blind contour cartographic experiment to document each trip to work. I arranged them into an animation to study and look for patterns in the subconscious.
