Description: Growth Is Messy is an algorithm-based artwork composed in the R Statistics language, which was produced with an Axidraw pen plotter. The algorithm was pretty simple, using a series of 100 points along a circle, which expanded and rotated slightly over a series of time steps. Each of the resultant lines connect the paths of a single point along the transforming circumference, plotted with a heavier # 10 pen. The materials used included black paper purchased locally, Arnhem 1618, which is a high-quality, 100% rag, acid-free printmaking paper. The composition were drawn with white Sakura Gelly Roll pens. Each print took 1-2 hours to produce.

This artwork is a three-iteration print with a single edition each, hand signed with iteration number 1-3 in the 2 inch margin. These prints ship directly from the artist’s studio in Charleston, SC. More information about shipping and returns can be found here.
