House No. 127: Constellation Houses

House No. 127: Constellation Houses
pencil and white out tape on repurposed matboard
8.75 in. x 6.5 in.
127/365; 05/07/11

Today’s piece is sort of a variation on yesterday’s. Both have three houses and use some of the same materials, but yesterday’s deals with space and today’s piece is about line.

I like the idea of constellations: people playing connect the dots with stars to create pictures and mythology. It is a common trait amongst all people to find patterns and make visual sense out of randomness and stories to explain the unknowable.

I invented a sky in this drawing where I found houses pictured among the stars. For the Skull Appreciation Day exhibition in Richmond, Virginia, I did something similar.
