This is the end result of all of the experiments I’ve been conducting on the topic of chance; a 140 page documentation book called Fifteen Random Walks: Explorations of Chance in Trajectory. It chronicles the process I used (various stages can be seen in past posts on this site) starting with defining chance; developing a system of generating locations randomly; mapping them out; taking/finding pictures of the places; and finally analyzing the results.

So this project has come to an end—But I’m only getting started.
In case you didn’t know, the things I am doing on this site are a part of my graphic design thesis project at the School of Visual Arts in The Senior Project Class—taught by Paul Sahre and Lindsay Ballant. Up to now, this has been a guided process the whole class has been led through—where we have been doing an exploration of our topic (chance, for me) that we chose after analyzing the first assignment we did, and the reasons behind our solutions. Everything we do informs the next step, culminating in a result that we could have not chosen in the beginning.
So what’s next for me?
Well, I’m working on developing my project idea right now, and expecting some exciting results. All that I am revealing currently is that it will involve chance (obviously), and it will be 11-43% more involved than this project was.
So please, bookmark this page and come back often to see what I’m up to, and let me know what you think.
