Maryland Heights Quilt
|| 11/29/2005 || 1:57 pm || Comments Off on Maryland Heights Quilt || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

When I gave the my mom & two sisters maps of the apartment we grew up in, I realized I needed to make a map of the house my mom’s fiance & his son live at. Located not far from the intersection of highway 70 & 270 in Northwest Saint Louis County in Maryland Heights, Missouri, I chose to select an area that is strictly suburban with only houses & streets. The result is a rendering that doesn’t have any geographic identifiers aside from that brown blob in the center (its a small grove of trees). It took me quite awhile to find their house, but I was able to, just barely! I will probably make another map using this imagery, but I need to make sure that their house shows up a bit more. Yet while it was rendering I downloaded a bunch more source imagery: Providence, RI, the Mission District in San Fran (my sister lives there), and Rodeo Drive in West Hollywood (something for my LA friends)….so the docket is stacked for the next week or so, but I first need to prepare all of this imagery!

What I like most about this rendering, simply, is the way the houses and streets make the essence of this rendering instead of a specific location.

Marquette High School Quilt
|| 11/28/2005 || 1:39 pm || 2 Comments Rendered || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

In the last two weeks I’ve reconnected with about 10 different folks I knew back in high school. To celebrate this, and to actually follow through with one of my old ideas, I made a rendering for my high school in Clarkson Valley, MissouriMarquette High School. Located about 22 miles from downtown Saint Louis, in the affluent West County, this public high school cost over 20 million dollars to construct and in less than 10 years it was expanded to hold more students. There were trailers placed in the front of the school for a few years and the year after I graduated in 1999, they finished the expansion and removed the trailers. The aerial photograph used was taken by the USGS in March of 2002, and if you look closely, the sidewalk in front of the school is still visible where the trailers used to be.

I could probably go on & on about aboutt this rendering, filling in every detail of the complex mental map I have, but I won’t. If I do another rendering, I’ll be sure to add another story or two about that place, space, and time.

For Christmas, I’d like to print up a copy of this rendering and donate it to the school….

Ballwin Quilt
|| 7/28/2005 || 4:12 pm || Comments Off on Ballwin Quilt || ||

: rendered at 15,000 X 10,000 :

This is my fourth rendering of my childhood apartment in Ballwin, Missouri. While I really like the way the quilt looks, shortly after I started the rendering I realized I could have just as easily made this image in Photoshop. The modified imagery I used was the first derivative of the Ballwin Lenz #2 and what I’ve realized is that since the imagery was derived from a previous rendering that already has the axis’s of symmetry embedded within it, the current template will not reflect the imagery to create a noticeable result.

Basically I am trying reflect something that has already been reflected and it is not going to bend anymore unless I modify the first derivative imagery to an extant that the future line of symmetry will be on a seam that I have not used yet. The first derivative used in this rendering was originally reflected at 45 degree intervals (0,45,90,135,180,225,270,and 315 degrees) so for it to be further reflected I need to either rotate the source imagery or reflect the imagery at an angle that divides into 360 evenly and doesn’t fall on the same degrees as the original. My only second derivative work, rotated at 12 degree intervals, but the final result is a bit too busy for my taste. I am really fascinated by this imagery discovery that I’m working on :) Science + Art = Beauty
