Join us for Ilana Zweschi's spotlight reception at Gallery Frames during the First Thursday Pioneer Square Art Walk.
Artist Statement: I write algorithms that translate non-visual information into visual pathways. This non-visual information has two sources: one is ordinary (common or random) and the other is extraordinary (sacred or poignant). I begin with, for example, texts embodying personal experiences of grief or the translation of a sacred Buddhist prayer ceremony. I then disrupt these meaningful origin texts with meaningless systems of chance such as dice rolling, card playing, etc. The result is a marrying of deliberate actions and unbiased chaos.
