The Estate of Rochelle F.

April 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

from Rochelle Fenstein’s

The Estate of Rochelle F” at On Stellar Rays in which she recycles content from her studio:

The Estate of Rochelle F. began during the economic downturn of 2009, when Feinstein surveyed her studio’s assets, counting among these older stretchers, unfinished paintings, unused art supplies, and an assortment of other resources. Feinstein ventured to optimize these assets’ value by recombining the materials into a new body of work. In making The Estate, Feinstein 1) would not spend any additional money on this work, 2) would use any and all supplies as “assets,” and 3) would use maximal material and minimal gesture.”

Jeff Thompson: The Poetics of Data

Jeff Thompson
discusses data sets as poetic texts.

[Image: Printout from Art & Language Index 03]

“Index 03 included 64,000 possible combinations of its own text, represented in a shorthand code created for the project. An example line included in Howard’s essay:

C(EX)AB1(X) & N(EX)BC2(X) & N(EX)CD3(X) & N(EX)EF5(X) & N(EX)FG6(X) & C(EX)GH7(X) & N(EX)HI8(X) & N(EX)IJ9(X) & N(EX)JK10(X) & C(EX)KL11(X) & N(EX)LM12(X) & C(EX)MN13(X) & C(EX)NO14(X) & C(EX)OP15(X) & C(EX)PQ16(X).

This interest in merging logical operations and invented linguistic systems with the formal, visual/verbal, and associative – what we can loosely refer to as “poetic” concerns – presents us another possible Rosetta Stone to begin reading data as text. ”
