aleatory: fire water leaf01 leaf02


This 4 x 9 array is from my archives—my first experiment in using chance to make an artwork. ("Aleatory" roughly means "by chance.") Since there were four possible choices, I flipped a coin twice for each location to determine what went into it.

  2. Interesting process. Brilliant vibrant colours. Reminds me of a forest fire.

  3. I love the playfulness of this piece Lynn and the fact that you flipped a coin to bring it to a solution.

  4. I know you are a retired doctor Fi. This has the feeling of a medical book image...like seeing a slice of stained human tissue put under a slide...I like it!
