[TISEA 1992] Artist Statement: Madge Gleeson – Blind Man’s Bluff

Artist Statement

Installation of laser prints

This series reflects my interest in using the computer directly as a drawing device to produce work that could only have resulted from interaction between artist and an electronic toolbox. I’ve tried to give each piece a gestural sense of hand while at the same time never denying the digital basis of the work.

Blind Man’s Bluff is a piece which refers to the gathering and analysis of seemingly disconnect-ed pieces of data inviting the viewer to mix, match and sort the visual information. It was inspired by seeing video footage generated from stereo pairs of satellite photos at Siggraph.
