US based visual artist Todd Gilens will present his work connecting handwriting, stream morphology and landscape changes at the Golden Thread Gallery on Thursday 23 July 2015, 1pm - 2pm.
While a resident artist at Digital Arts Studios Todd Gilens has been transforming the handwriting of Northern Irish writers into digital fonts, and by keyboarding in their hand, describing his encounters with the stream systems, geology and urban development of the Lagan River Valley. His project probes relationships between writing and observation by mixing up time periods and scrambling methods, and will become a basis for a project with California water systems. The artist will outline the larger planned work, share his process, accomplishments, and the questions raised during his residency.
