Today was a big day for Random Number Multiples. Jer Thorp finished his second screen print, Hope/Crisis – NYT Word Frequencies, 1981 – 2010 and the image makes an interesting pairing with his other piece in the series, RGB – NYT Word Frequencies, 1981 – 2010. Both prints map the information in a neutral way as timepiece graphs, but they convey a chilling kind of gravity precisely because of this systematized presentation of fact.
And also today, the packaging and shipping elements for Random Number Multiples arrived! Each print comes with a letter of authenticity and a description of the artwork with artist bio & instructions on how to care for the print. But the element I’m most excited about in the shipping package are these awesome “handle with care” stickers.
Prints go on sale Feb 1!!!!!
