Wall Drawing

Here is my Lewitt “Wall Drawing”:


It is not really the code we talk about today because this was made by a human. It was code as origami or crocheting instructions are code (although Lewitt had no intention to clarify for the person on the receiving end). I saw a lot of similarities between the wall drawing and code. It was a structured whole piece that needed to be de-constructed layer by layer. Not as straightforward as it sounds, because no piece could not be fudged or ignored without resulting in an odd drawing. I found that I worked on this the same way I would work on a processing problem.

I got through it by looking at past wall drawings and seeing his style of wording, and then applying that to our trapezoid. Our trapezoid was not as bad as some other horrid wall drawings.
