Gallery Opening Reception for artist Jake Jordan's, "Two Plotter Projects :: An Exploration of Space and Time"

Description of Event:
The pieces explore how we perceive information through space and time. The visual aesthetics employed throughout both of the pen plotted series in this presentation are inspired by vintage geophysical calculations, geological maps and the idiosyncrasies of the HP 7475A Plotter.

Vintage pen plotters allow the creation of pen drawings that appear mechanically perfect, with a handmade quality. This combination of physical and digital qualities provides a warm, almost tactile means for visualizing data. The plotter used here is now 32 years older than the computers used to make calculations and process data show in all the pieces presented here.

About the Artist:
Jake Jordan is currently a PhD candidate in Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin. He studies the partial melting of Earth (and other rocky planets). The partial melting of planetary interiors can lead to the onset of plate tectonics, volcanism, the chemical differences observed in rocks throughout worlds and may play an integral role in the evolution of habitable planets.
