Postgraduate Exhibition – Photos

A lot of my posts recently have been pretty process/theory heavy, so I thought I’d keep this one simple. Here are some photos of my final work in the Postgraduate Exhibition.

For more photos and videos of finished and in-progress work take a look at my Instagram: benpartridgebtp

I am currently putting together a time-lapse of the drawing machine in action in the exhibition that I will upload later this week.

Polarograph drawing machine – Wales 9/9/15

This drawing machine is drawing all the love shared on Twitter in Wales on 6/9/15. The drawing will depict 24 hours with each ‘pixel’ documenting one minute, the darker the ‘pixel’ the more love was share in that minute. The ‘pixels’ are drawn chronologically from the top left hand corner of the drawing to the bottom right.
