    Edward Chell’s work explores a matrix of connected ideas centred on taxonomies and extinction, thresholds and boundaries, borders and hinterlands. For instance, his recent project Soft Estate investigated the aesthetics and ecology of motorway landscapes in relation to the 18th Century Picturesque. Chell uses such sites to foreground colliding narratives through painting and a wide range of media.

    As Defacing art project comes to an end, I wanted to clarify its bases.

    Defacing art project was imagined with a simple idea, naturally, to change the perception of the past and to create a new future, which will in turn become our present. As impossible as it may seem, it was poetic and plausible to me.

    ‘Living in the past’ is a condition of many immigrants, and I wanted to change this aspect of their lives. It is this way with my family, my people and all those who are in this situation of emotional limbo. Defacing Art project allows for the public to contribute to the artwork by painting on it, a real visual therapy. Rebuilding or maculating an iconographic image of our past can potentially change it or the perception of it, and then build a different future from this new landmark. Defacing is a project that invites to experiment with icons in the present while being aware that this is relative to the past.

    Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

    As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

    Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

    So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

    You bet!! Depicted here is a:

    • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
    • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
    • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
    • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

    I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….
