Description: The Structure is algorithm-based artwork composed in the R Statistics language, which was produced with an Axidraw pen plotter. The algorithm created a series of nine basis waves that combined rounded and canonical sine functions to form circular steps (plotted with the heavier # 10 pen), and 5-16 weighted averages (plotted with the lighter # 8 pen). Each line was drawn exactly twice to create a sharp contrast with the black paper. 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 two different white Sakura Gelly Roll pens. Each print took 2-3 hours to produce.

This artwork is a three-iteration print with a single edition each, hand signed with iteration number 1-3 in the 1.75 inch margin. These prints ship directly from the artist’s studio in Charleston, SC. More information about shipping and returns can be found here.
