    The time print device uses blotting paper with Letraset felt-pen. The felt-pen ink bleed in the paper for a duration relative to the grey value of a pixel.
    Every “time stain” gradually recreates any images in a pointilist style.
    The aim of this project is to emphasize the making process, it can take 20 hours to print one color on a A2 paper.

    RIP Eleanor Kent

    San Francisco artist who was an early explorer incorporating computing and technology in artistic practice. From SFGate:

    Eleanor Kent, one of the early Bay Area artists to pioneer new technology as an art form, died of lung disease in her San Francisco home on July 17. She was 83.

    … Ms. Kent started painting and drawing seriously in the mid-1950s after getting a bachelor’s degree in English at Harvard University. When color copiers appeared in the ’70s, she lugged a 1,000-pound Xerox machine to the top floor of her Noe Valley Victorian and began painting on fabric and T-shirts and using the color copier to create prints of poppies, lace, shells, bones and eggs.

    Throughout the ’80s, she collaborated with early Silicon Valley tech companies to influence and test-drive their new design tools, such as Apple’s graphic tablets and Vectronic’s Koala Pad.

    She taught herself to program in BASIC computer code on her first Apple IIe and printed pictures in dot matrix that she transformed into Cibachrome prints. The large pixels of her prints reminded her of stitches, so Ms. Kent started knitting fractals, Koch curves, Pascal’s triangles and other mathematical images into body jewelry using electro-luminescent wire, which surrounds the wearer with light.

    “My mom did things other artists simply didn’t do,” said her son, James Schermerhorn IV.
