Random generations

A series of small experiments to generate random new ideas that could inform my final piece.

  1. BOOK: Go to a charity shop or library. WITHOUT reading or noticing what the titles or authors are, (close your eyes if necessary or at least half shut them) go to the FICTION area and pull a book randomly from the shelves. Turn to page 27. Put your finger on the right hand page and read the first sentence that your eye falls upon. Repeat or remember or write down this sentence.
  2. DICTIONARY: Get a large dictionary. Throw dice or use a random number generator  ( to get a page number, line number or use a pin to choose a word on the page you have generated. Write this word down.
  3. Thesaurus: Look up in a thesaurus each of the words in your Strategy. Create a grid of the possible alternatives.
For instance I looked up “Change specifics to ambiguities” and  got 
“Metamorphose the distinguishing features to a blur”
  4. Poetry book :Using similar methods to 1 and 2 above, choose one line at random from an anthology of poetry.       “


"Are you a married man Mr Wilson?"

"I look at them, and the only thought which comes to me is a feeling of their isolation and the impunity with which crime may be committed there."

"A criminal strain ran in his blood which, instead of being modified, was increased and rendered infinitely more dangerous by his extraordinary mental powers."











These words, when mixed with my phrase, could create some very creative things, some don’t fit so well for what I plan to draw. Taking my own illustrative aims and morals into account I want my piece to have a meaning and a moral or a shock value. 

Kali Ciesemier inspires me with her use of colour and shape and minimal use of line. Her colours always mesh together pefectly to create an overall attractive hue to the entire image. She creates narative in an image very easily.

Also by the way I greatly dislike horses and the decision to tame and ride them was possibly one of the silliest decisions in the history of humans.

Note to self: do not forget to take medication 3 days in a row or you will regret it my god what a doofus.
