Eric Daigh: digitaal, maar niet op een scherm.

'Color literally could not be more important to me. The primaries specifically. I feel it's almost a crutch to work with them. They do all the work, with the viewer. It's a particular source of pride to be able to get away with using such garish, bright tones. In general, I find that a slippery slope. But when it works it really works. Almost all of the work that goes into this (which is largely done in software) is devoted to getting the color right. It's easy to assume that the end result is the result of a button pushed, but it's actually a quite easy thing to get wrong. When there is luminance, and texture, and subtlety in the piece, I am happy.' - Eric Daigh (self portrait below)

We're the product of small set of variables: the four base pairs of DNA, social or corporate homogonization. Eric has captured this simplicity in his work made up of pins: with only five colors of plastic everyone can be reproduced. Making something digital with his hands is very satisfying for Eric. He enjoys the physicality of it, the love, discipline, focus, repetition, effort and absurdity needed to make it.
