a projector painting
I was inspired by reading the introduction to Haidee Wasson's book "Everyday Movies" to take a stab at painting a projector. I'd made a list of all my film and slide and video projectors and viewing devices at one point when I'd just started painting. I thought I would eventually go on to them but the allure of the hand-held objects remains key to my paintings. The projector proved pretty difficult, taking me longer than any cameras have taken me in a long time (perhaps 4 hours). Angles and curves are there to serve the machine and contain its contents more than they are to improve user interface.
