Together the three works are a triangulated exploration of colour. The Haphazard Colour Machine has no specified meaning. It has, however, a meditative and poetic quality which is nascent with potential for multiple indefinite metaphors originating from concurrent audience experience. The Haphazard Colours of the Sphere is a directory of specific meanings in the form of audience contributions, some concrete, some rational, some metaphorical and some rhetorical. The meaning is specific to individual contribution. Some of these are eloquently expressive while others are terse and direct. The youngest contributor is under five years the eldest is an octogenarian. Those represented embody a vast array of social groups. The work pays no attention to social position, pretention or affectation. It delivers all contributions with equal opportunity. The contributions are the heart, soul and intelligence of the artwork. The Haphazard Analytical Colour Engine uses the form of an empirical statistical tool to generate images from contributorsí data. The meta-data is the artwork. It creates spectra of collective associations.
