PATH TO PATTERN | CASEY GALLOWAY
“In the middle of my life, I drew the path of it upon a map and studied it a long time. I tried to see the pattern that it made upon the earth because I thought that if I could see the pattern and identify the form of it then I would know better how to continue. I would know what my path must be.”
–Cormac McCarthy, from “Cities of the Plain”
I seek a reduction of information to create pattern and rhythm. I build systems that will develop unpredictable outcomes, to balance order by allowing materials, dyeing techniques, and woven structure to determine results. I am currently focusing on generating pattern through written/spoken word and body movement.
