Climate Data Tablet So I now had a basic working composition. I like the fact that the upright structure of the artic scientists and the curved horizontal of the computer banks echoes the ancient T and O maps: I spent some time photoshopping weather symbols and computer devices into useable B&W line images: The 2 artic scientists morphed, with data graphs overlapping their bodies... A photo of a woman at a laptop was cast as the-scientist-on-the-right-side, loads of data images were tucked into every empty space, and I had the final version: Printed and dyed: Stitched and mounted on the stack of cloth: I did something with the stitching that I haven't done before - I sewed a heavy black line to anchor the center: The black line pulls your eye to the center and strongly connects the data collection to the data storage. Below, stitched patterns of 1s and 0s symbolize the computerized data. This is the first tablet I've mounted on stacks of cloth. More coming.Next week, there's just one very long blog on Monday.
