tree diagrams by david byrne


History of Mark-making, 2002

David Byrne from Talking Heads fame has an interesting website. He not only broadcasts a MP3 radio stream, there is also a lot of other stuff to find. E.E.E.I. (Envisioning Emotional Epistemological Information) is a project where Byrne used nerdy old Microsoft Powerpoint to create art. There is also a page of drawings, in his own words: “drawing/diagrams (mostly) in the form of trees, which both elucidate and obsfucate the roots of contemporary phenomena and terminology. Sort of like borrowing the evolutionary tree format and applying it to other, often incompatible, things.” more here: Arboretum. Heck, the guy even designs bike racks. see the video here

David Byrne, Space-Time Reflexivity, 2002

Postscriptum: Note that superheroes, archetypes, mythical creatures and wild animals  all featured in the case study of children’s drawings my recent presentation held at the UKLA. I’d love to know hat was going on in David Byrne’s mind.
