Let's Read Art: CF

The piece discussed this week is a drawing by artist C.F. Below are the interpretations of Stephen (my husband), Andy and Spencer (my sons) and myself.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • is that two pieces?
  • i see a bad plane that won't fly
  • it's a model plane
  • the lines represent a shape
  • two of the five squares are the same
  • they're perfect grids
  • one is just straight lines
  • two are are wiggly and jazzy
  • off set "Z" and "1" at the top
  • layers of paper
  • the piece is monochromatic

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  • the back of the plane is too skinny and the front is a triangle so it doesn't make sense that it's a real plane
  • airplanes fly
  • navigation maps
  • navigational systems
  • topographical maps
  • the paper has folds and the paper is a bit beat up
  • the layering is interesting almost sketch like but drawn with precision
  • the wiggly grids look like grids that have been glitched

WHY DID THE ARTIST PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER?

  • explaining coordinates
  • the top is code to hide location of the plane from others
  • kind of like a multi-panel cartoon
  • feels like instructions

These are our interpretations, you may see something different. Oh, and I should mention that when we do this we don't read up about the piece until after we've looked at it.
