The Arbitrary Data Codex

Drawings / projections, 2011 - 2013

The Arbitrary Data Codex is a collection of 363 line drawings informed by the practice of Fractography (wiki). The drawings illustrate the strength and fragility of a given volume or surface. They are envisioned as a taxonomy of patterns, metrics, and risk maps of arbitrary structures and volumes. The reversed negative drawings (white on black) are used in video projections.
