Japanese-born, New York-based artist Katsumi Hayakawa constructs densely layered sculptures that resemble, rather than replicate, overbuilt cityscapes. Hayakawa erects boxes of varying heights along a grid, leaving voids in the volumes that create another level of complexity. Instead of reading as individual buildings, the structures form an abstract composition.
John Houck Using customized computer programs to plot grids of every possible variation of a number of pre-determined colors, John Houck's resulting grid-based images become a contact sheet of sorts, which are then printed using traditional digital photographic techniques. Once printed the sheet is then manipulated through a series of folds, and the entire sheet is then re-photographed. That image is then printed and folded a second time, and becomes the final piece.
