Completing Bank Street Arts Residency

Writing the rules on the roll of paper has been an interesting process, though some instructions seem more rule based, while other seem to chart the journey, recording the process of overcoming the hurdles we encounter when producing work. The question is do I need to test them by letting others attempt to create the work in order to decipher their accuracy?

The detritus or evidence of my labour seems to have equal importance to other elements of the work -
Are the drawings just evidence or the document of an activity, giving them the same status as the stubby pencils, sharpenings, empty pin boxes and newspapers?

I am considering binding all the drawings into a book, as a document of the residency, the rules may be written as a seperate book, but I am unsure as yet how or where to include the photos of the other evidence of the process.

This feels like the beginning of something....

Bank Street Arts - Day eight - Thursday 4th Oct

I have begun to experiment with writing up the process of developing the algorithm
because this is not a linear process it is hard to write up in a way that makes sense or is accessible - does this matter?
I am considering writing it down in a way that shows the build up and fluidity of the rules until they become resolved and at that point fixed
Also having filled a large sheet of paper without resolving the written evidence I intend to get a roll of paper, to write them on, which intentionally suggests the never ending process...

Bank Street Arts - Day seven - Tuesday 2nd Oct

Another set of drawings done today
Beginning to think about how to let the audience in on the constraints within the algorithm
I will need to write down the thought process behind how the rules get formed and become internalised
