Vacant Lot, by Hannah Ireland (Ten x Ten 2015)

Medium: Screenprint
Edition Size: 10
Dimensions: 18″ x 18″

Vacant Lot is one of ten prints published as part of the Ten x Ten 2015 Collection. Ten x Ten 2015 is the result of a year-long collaboration involving ten unique partnerships between jazz/improvising musicians and visual artists focused on the role of improvisation.

Vacant Lot was printed in conjunction with music by the same name composed by Cameron Pfiffner.

Cameron and Hannah’s collaboration explores repetition and the breakdown of structure: in visual and auditory imagery, and through the effects of natural forces and the elements. The musicians begin by playing written notes and gradually transition to the graphic notation of drawings. Over time the steadiness of the written notes is colonized by the dissemination of repetitive marks and improvisation.”
