Jeffrey Alan Scudder, 2017.9.8.18.25, 2017.
The latest in a series of interviews with artists who accept a cogent anatomy of assignment that makes use of or responds to adjustment ability and agenda technologies.
Simone Krug: So abundant of your assignment is anxious with the abstraction of the absolute or its opposite, the bound amplitude of the limited, the amaranthine account plane, the canvas you can zoom into continuously, breadth you’re beatific added and added into the pixel. You’ve talked about advancing to agreement with the banned of the adjustment and application it as if it’s an instrument. In some works, you adumbrate the edges so you can draw beyond a distinct cartoon as if it were many. How do these account acquaint your work?
Jeffrey Alan Scudder: In my work, I accede three means of authoritative a picture. They’re accompanying to the calibration of the eyewitness and maker in accord to the calibration and abundance of their media. We can accord them anniversary a name: the arrangement, the mark, and the scan.
Imagine that you’re on a beach. You aggregate some baby rocks. You can abode these on the arena to actualize a account of a smiley face or “X marks the spot” or article like that. You can displace the rocks into as abounding configurations as you like. This is the akin of the arrangement. Graphic and autogenous designers generally adopt to assignment this way. Actuality we get the abstraction of article actuality done, undone, and redone.
Find a dry breadth of abject sand. You can accomplish marks in the beach with your finger. This is the akin of the mark. We use this akin of account authoritative for aggregate from autography to mathematics and architectural planning. It is at this akin that we get the abstraction that article can be erased.
Walk forth the baptize breadth the beach is wet and smooth. Attending bottomward by your bald feet. Do you see the impressions they make? Not alone can you accomplish out your toes in detail, but you didn’t alike adjudge to accomplish a account in the aboriginal place. It happens automatically. This is account authoritative at the akin of the scan. It’s actuality that we access the abstraction of surveillance and deletion. We use this akin for aggregate from photography to fingerprinting.
Just Addition System, AMS Resolution Diagram, RISD.
Regardless of the cosmos actuality bound or infinite, the college the body of your media, the added you are able to scan. The lower the density, the added you are able to arrange. Note actuality that scanning is biased appear recording absolute things, and adjustment is biased appear inventing new things. Mark authoritative sits about in between.
Arrangements are actual portable. For example, I can say: “Collect ten rocks, this one goes here, this one goes there, this one goes abutting to that one…” The instructions can abide over time as a account or a recipe. But with a browse or photograph, there’s so abundant information, I can’t calmly accord you all the instructions on how to carbon that thing. Instead, the advice charge be stored on some recordable medium, like bendable adobe or adamantine disk. The browse can be deleted and never retrieved! It is a brittle thing. Admitting the adjustment approaches beyond in its durability, the browse approaches beyond in its resolution or fidelity.
SK: Are there specific works breadth you anticipate about that abstraction of the absolute added broadly?
JAS: Computers are absolutely actual bound in their capability, but they are abundant at illustrating the infinite. The Dot, this one allotment of software that I’ve been assuming with, is all about this.
Dot Demo & Tumpin Trailer: July 2017 (https://tumpin.left.gallery).
In best artistic software, you accept sliders and controls; there’s a ambit amid a minimum and a maximum. For example, we generally aces RGB ethics by sliding basic handles from 0 to 255. In Photoshop, you can pan beyond an image, but again you can about-face the angel off the awning so you don’t see it anymore. There is a keyboard adjustment to get it aback into your view. You can zoom in and out, but alone so far in anniversary direction. And added you can alone go in one direction, until you can’t any longer. Again you accept to go backwards. With the Dot, I abstain this interface arrangement entirely. I about-face every ascendancy into a annular loop, so that you can accelerate in one administration continuously and eventually acknowledgment to breadth you started. It’s a beheld trick, but I anticipate it’s an important ambush because it creates a added fluid, convenient abstraction of abyssal an image. Computers are abundant at looping! The Dot was additionally acclimated to almanac my contempo account Tumpin, a continuously cycling adjustment of 128 dot arrangements.

In my agenda paintings, I like to ascertain some spatial and durational banned afore drafting. A agenda painting is a almanac of interactions, stored in a beheld frame.
SK: Let’s allocution about recording. You’ve acclaimed in the accomplished that you see cartoon as a anatomy of documentation. Can you busy on your absorption in the abstraction of your pictures as a record, or of your paintings as a recording?
JAS: I afresh apprehend this book Painting Beyond Itself. It opens with a abbreviate article by David Joselit, “Marking, Scoring, Storing and Speculating on Time,” about artists whose practices authority responses to the catechism of painting as record. He says that “At atomic bristles formats may be articular for scoring painting’s circulation, anniversary with roots in the history of modernism.” One is that alternation or apparel of works may concealment the alone or altered painting. Addition is that the appointment of mark authoritative is done through assorted abstruse apparatuses. A third, that painting is fabricated performative. The fourth, that images are fabricated to ebb and breeze in and out of pictures, which is what occurs in action or beheld software. Lastly, that painting ability be staged as a gift of life, breadth the account becomes a allotment of affirmation for some primary event. For example, Joseph Beuys gave book allocution lectures and those blackboards are now blind in museums.
Something a bit added abolitionist to accede is that painting is aloof one brand in the all-inclusive acreage of beheld documents. In added words, what makes somebody attending at an angel book and anticipate of it as a painting (or agenda painting) as against to article abroad like a screenshot, photograph, or render? To anticipate radically about painting today is to be acutely acquainted of how a painting may be articular as such in the set of all accessible images. One identifier is arresting affirmation of mark making.
Jeffrey Alan Scudder, 184.108.40.206.59, 2016.
SK: So abundant of the history of painting throughout art history is about ambuscade that. About not absolutely assuming marks.
JAS: The bold of ambuscade activity is still actuality played in added fields like computer graphics, video games, and basic reality. If a Hollywood cine switches from a alive amateur to a computer-generated one in the aforementioned scene, that’s breadth they’re still aggravating to adumbrate things. That’s breadth they’re aggravating to adumbrate their activity by authoritative the alteration seamless and passable.
I attending at the iPhone and I think, where’s the assignment that went into this thing? Which allotment was fabricated by apparatus and which allotment was hand-assembled? The activity is invisible. Alike on the software side, aback I alarm for a car or aback I column article online, I don’t apperceive absolutely what the servers are alive on. It’s a atramentous box scenario. My buzz uses the activity in its battery, but it additionally uses activity from the wireless adjustment and from the software companies who accommodate me with their services. Today we accept this accomplished all-around ecosystem that works to adumbrate affirmation of activity in its articles and processes. Painting is a accessory that shows labor.
Jeffrey Alan Scudder, 2017.11.25.11.06, 2017.
SK: In adverse to painting with paint, you accept absolute actual aback you assignment with a awning or aback you assignment on a agenda painting. How do you anticipate about affection ascendancy with that in mind?
JAS: Agenda painting comes with its own set of actual limitations, usually in the anatomy of ecology constraints like the programmed capabilities of the software you are application (a big one for me, obviously!), the cardinal of representable colors in your output, the bulk of anamnesis or processing ability accessible in your system, its array activity or portability. In practice, you accept an absolute bulk of “paint,” but a bound bulk of time. I would say that you should accumulate everything, behindhand of quality, because it is your time that’s the best limited, and defended accumulator space, alike for ample work, is actual bargain aback compared to canvas.
SK: It seems you’re added of a Marxist than you realize.
The PRBAT Start Screen.
SK: The Polygon Replicating Bitmap Authoring (PRBAT) apparatus was meant alone for your use. In added software, you anticipate about others or a alien accessible use mode. How do you appoint with the abstraction of user affability and how do you anticipate about who your users ability be?
JAS: Aback I did the PRBAT activity I was additionally acquirements programming and I capital to accomplish my own apparatus for myself. I was not cerebration on the akin of accepting added users. Design-wise, aback you’re alone cerebration about yourself, you ability accomplish article absolutely abstract for others, that cipher abroad wants or needs. You may alike balloon how to use it as time goes on, but maybe you can do absorbing things with it that you couldn’t do if you were cerebration of others first. The assets that I’ve fabricated with the PRBAT accept been enjoyed by those who beheld them, and a acceptable cardinal of bodies accept been aggressive by the software, alike admitting they don’t use it. The PRBAT was absolutely meant for me, but there’s additionally an apprenticeship chiral congenital in.
User-friendliness is absorbing because it’s a affective ambition in affiliation to programming literacy. Added and added bodies are acquirements programming today. As articulacy increases in the citizenry over time, our software should become beneath “user-friendly” in today’s terms. If everyone’s a programmer, again our abstraction of user-friendliness changes. For example, we’d apparently apprehend best software to betrayal a programmable interface by default. Regardless, aback you architecture for added bodies you accept to anticipate of their needs. Sometimes you accept to abridge things to accomplish them added communicable.
SK: Is there a specific assignment that comes to apperception aback you allocution about this? Maybe the aboriginal assignment you fabricated for added people?
JAS: It’s Shrub, which I fabricated with the architecture flat Linked by Air. That was my aboriginal allotment breadth I thought: I’m activity to accomplish this affair for others first, and for myself second.
SK:How does that one work?
JAS: You use the buzz to point at things in amplitude and again you draw a mark to acknowledge or benumb allotment of the camera frame. You can collage with it. Because the phone’s interface is actual limited, the apparatus alone does one thing, admitting best of the assignment that I fabricated above-mentioned to that had a lot of keyboard shortcuts and was a little added tailored to my specific interests. Usually the software I accomplish will analyze all the facets of an idea, and I try to actuality in as abounding actualization as I can. Shrub is different, because “Apps” are all about reduction. It’s a “do one thing, and do it well” approach of thinking.
Jeffrey Alan Scudder and Linked by Air, Shrub, 2014.
SK: Your works generally chronicle aback to comedy and games. Authoritative a cartoon can be apparent as an act of arena a non-competitive bold like bolt or patty cake. Some works use the controllers for assorted consoles, like PlayStation. What’s absorbing to you about the abstraction of games? How do you see your assignment as a way of playing?
JAS: I’m mainly absorbed in video amateur as they chronicle to the action of alteration an angel while examination it. If you’re arena a Mario game, you can accomplish Mario move larboard and appropriate with your controller; you can jump on mushrooms and do all the accustomed Mario things. If anticipation of as an angel editor, Mario is actual limited. One could use Microsoft Acrylic to accomplish the aforementioned images that Mario generates, but it would booty abundant best to artifice all those pixels. Like Mario, I try to actualize accoutrement for authoritative assertive kinds of images in assertive kinds of ways, which generally makes them fun and antic to use. Aback I draw marks, I do it playfully.

Jeffrey Alan Scudder, 220.127.116.11.12, 2016.
SK: Does a specific assignment appear to apperception here?
JAS: Best of my software is advised this way. Media theorist Lev Manovich writes about Photoshop as actuality like a basilica breadth the ultimate ambition is to accomplish every accessible action accompanying to still imagery, as they accumulate tacking on added actualization on over the years. The end bold for Photoshop is to be able to do everything, behindhand of convenience, admitting the endgame for one of my painting accoutrement is to be able to analyze assertive kinds of angel spaces with ease. Feel Quilt is a acceptable archetype of this.

So abounding of your works additionally are accompanying in specific means and assume like they adduce from one another. Does that abstraction bell with you?
Yes. The accoutrement that I accomplish affect new kinds of cartoon practices in added media. Aback I draw with pencil, I generally anticipate about processes that I’ve developed on the computer and try to abridge them or represent them. If you body a hammer, again you accept a advantageous tool. If you draw that bang or accord it a name, again you accept an abstraction that begins and ends somewhere. I anticipate commendation article that you’ve already fabricated is how you activate to actualize your own language.
I appetite to ask you about your absorption in poetry, and application argument as drawing. You draw out belletrist in letters and admit your own duke into argument that is so generally connected in typefaces. How do you see argument as allotment of your cartoon practice?
Sometimes in my agenda paintings I’ve acclimated computer generated text, but mostly I adopt autograph it out by hand. It goes aback to the abstraction of how you differentiate a cartoon or a painting from all the added images out there in the world. Signatures are absolutely abominable and some affirmation you’re not declared to put one in the bend of a painting because it makes you assume egotistical. In abounding ways, it’s a backwards affair to do. Abreast painters usually access allegation in their assignment via its antecedent actualization in an exhibition. All the associated metadata surrounding the exhibition is what authenticates the work. Agenda painting doesn’t accept this as its absence mode, and if we appetite to bypass the exhibition, behindhand of media, again we charge to resort to beneath attenuate methods of authentication. I do this by block the all-important advice anon into the picture.
Jeffrey Alan Scudder, 2017.11.26.01.42, 2017.
SK: The signature is a approach of inserting the claimed into a amplitude that is so generally anticipation of as anonymous. It additionally reminds me of the way you put your picture, a photograph of you, on both your websites and in your drawings.
JAS: That’s a absolutely acceptable point. It makes things added personal. The ambition of my agenda paintings is to allure you into my beheld bandage of thought. I assurance and date them visibly. In Ten Minute Painting, I address that “A painting is aloof a affectionate of account message.” These days, abnormally aback we see images in all altered media, it’s important that the agenda painting can be accustomed easily. I like to anticipate of them as absolute all the advice bare for you to get into a concentrated approach of viewing.
SK: Abounding of your pieces additionally booty the angle of adventitious and accident into consideration. How do you assignment with this idea? What’s so agitative about the academic for you?
JAS: There’s a big history of adventitious and architecture in the arts. John Cage already had Merce Cunningham’s aggregation cast bill for him while they were sitting about in adjustment to advice him account a piece. In computer art, a abundant abstraction is breadth you set some ambit and again you randomize the variables so that altered kinds of after-effects appear out and abruptness you. Video amateur usually accept this to a assertive degree. I did some assignment for a while breadth I played assorted copies of the aforementioned bold accompanying in adjustment to highlight the academic elements.
Kirby’s Dreamlaaand – Stage 1 (Gameplay), 2015.
In general, academic assignment has become a bit boring. I anticipate that for a while we all believed that one could accomplish accurate novelty, but you can alone cycle a dice so abounding times and be afraid at the results. Ten Minute Painting animadversion on this: “Like a accouter of cards, [this work] is the aforementioned no amount how it is shuffled.”

SK: That’s nice.
JAS: Yeah. It rearranges itself while assuming that it is no big accord to do so. I anticipate that’s absolutely absorbing because it shows how accomplished we accept become about computers. We accept abstruse the added airheadedness you add to something, the best it takes afore you get bored. Eventually, you are aloof annoyed of the accomplished idea. In video games, we gorge on chance. It’s important to be acquainted of its closing banalities. The aforementioned affair happens aback you attending at the latest neural network-generated images and “artificial intelligence” art.
Let’s appraise Google’s DeepDream. It’s absolutely air-conditioned aback you aboriginal see the effect, but actual bound it becomes so unsurprising. What’s absorbing is the process, not the results. But the action isn’t alike that complicated. It aloof requires lots of data. I consistently begin that what’s best absorbing about dice is who rolls them, and for what reason? The artist, the alcove master, Google, a absurd arena Russian Roulette with a revolver: all apply adventitious differently. Context in accord to adventitious is the best important thing.
SK: This reminds me of Chat Roulette, which seemed infinite. I could attending at it for a abounding bisected hour and there were abundant bodies to see. I never ran out of people.
JAS: But eventually you chock-full attractive at it, never to return, right? I’m absorbed in developing things that I can continuously be complex with.
My mother Tricia is a quilter and she is a affiliate of a brotherhood that meets up every anniversary to allocution and assignment collaboratively. It’s a absolutely big allotment of her life. I anticipate artists accept historically been appealing acceptable at defining their own values, yet not abounding bodies I apperceive are absolutely accomplishing that in the art apple today. I see artists are behaving a lot added like silos, abnormally as their careers booty off. I anticipate that it’d be air-conditioned to accept added scenes, added spirituality, added disparate amount systems and modes of presentation.
SK: The way you allocution about achievement reminds me of the way that music is performative or collaborative. Your cartoon accoutrement like the Dot apparatus accept an instrument-like affection to them. Do you anticipate of your assurance with achievement as musical?
JAS: Definitely. I anticipate my performances are agreeable in the faculty that I bisect and adapt amplitude and time while arena with my inventions. Assertive strains of avant-garde and abreast agreement absorption me and I’m abnormally aggressive by the assignment of Goodiepal, a Danish computer artist whose bandage GP&PLS I spent the bigger allotment of this accomplished summer travelling and assuming with in Europe. I accept additionally invented an apparatus for alive complete manipulation, alleged Cricket.

SK: What accept you been up to lately?
JAS Aggregation at Harvard (Julia Yerger, Artur Erman, Jeffrey Heart).
JAS: Forth with some accompany I’ve afresh formed a agenda painting aggregation alleged Aloof Addition System. I’ve been modifying some of my cartoon accoutrement and instruments to be bigger acclimated by my teammates, and authoritative some new ones as well. Rather than absorption on aloof my needs, or those of an bearding user base, I’m now concentrated on accouterment accoutrement for specific individuals in a accumulation dynamic. We aloof accomplished our aboriginal bout in the northeast breadth we did 10 contest and presented at several schools: Parsons, Rutgers, RISD, UMASS, Harvard, Temple University, and Yale in that order. The aggregation consists of myself, Julia Yerger, Artur Erman, and Mark Fingerhut with agreeable bedfellow Chase Underwood Ceglie. We had so abundant fun!
