Matrixity Series By Stanza
A selection of work from the folio called "Matrixity Map Series". Original signed artworks on canvas size 100 by 100cm all individually titled. These artworks depict maps with layers of confused data and mixed information about the landscape. These are all based on real places but they becomes poetic interpretations of places we inhabit. Exhibited at TSSK Trondiem Norway and Centre des Arts d'Enghien-les-Bains France 2014.
These are all non-editioned artworks. Every print is a one-off, unique print on canvas. Each is signed on the back and has the provenance where they have been previously exhibited.
I kow which city is which but some of these images are merged multiple cities. I think its best not to know which city it is otherwise it becomesmore literal, and actually I am seeking a more abstracted and "expressive" interpretation of the language of landscape that we inhabit though design, rather than informational design or informatics. The concept in the series is about mixing data to create additional meaning, a poetic understanding of the world. . I use this term The Third Space as it came out research using my wireless sensors in 2006- 2009 when I speculated on merged data cities and overlapping border-less space in the virtual world for my project The Emergent City (essay http://stanza.co.uk/about/essays/Chap_10_Stanza_rev.pdf) and these artworks all to some extent use mixed data sets.
