Process

 

      Nancarrow’s Proxy is both a nod to composer Conlon Nancarrow and visual poetry. The project is in six sections. Each section consists of a descriptive text followed by five images. The series follows the trajectory of a group of cognitive spores, represented as punctuation, that land, commingle and finally interact with the musical logic of a player piano roll.‭ ‬
