10,000 Colors, Even Odd (2012)
On the pages of the book Computer Color, 10,000 Computer-Generated Process Colors (Chronicle Books, San Francisco 1990) , John and Paul have lino-printed a floating grid in black ink. Slight variations in the grid's positioning create vibrations that appear at once spatial and aleatory.

From the flyleaf of Computer Color, 10,000 Computer-Generated Process Colors (Chronicle Books, San Francisco 1990):
Each of the ten thousand color samples contained in this guide have been computer generated, output at high resolution on a Postscript raster image processor, and printed on the book's high-quality coated stock...

The introduction of a hand-cut and hand-printed grid over the 10,000 colours of these pages, creates a poetic tension between low-tech imaging and high; between the analogue and the digital. A reflection perhaps on our daily conversation/confrontation between our bodies and the machine.
