|I attempt to produce
such concept collages for a number of my works. They
document the process of developing a work, showing my earliest
napkin notes and sketches, up through the formal structures used
to manifest the final system.
I try to include fragments of flowcharting, machine
programming code, electrical schematic drawings, and mechanical
engineering sketches where available.
I hope that these documents may overcome the inherent
weaknesses of electronic means of knowledge archiving, the
incessant obsolescence of particular data formats, by using one
of the oldest and most standardized storage mediums: indelible
ink on archival paper.
