Every single frame is a painting.
Every electronic painting in TIME 1966 and SPACE IN THE BRAIN 1969 was intended to be transferred to static pictures on canvas and paper in monumental formats/sizes of 3 to 6 meter (or bigger) for all the museums of modern art in the whole world 1966-1969, made with modern new machines for printing in full color as well as in black and white.
Each large scale size painting was intended to be an original signed framed art work, and graphic portfolios in medium size was planned to be part of the presentation of the 10.000 of the electronic paintings, signed and numbered. Not one single hand made painting other than the signature on the objects.
It was unaffordable, so a few other artists got a job to hand made a limited number of the electronic paintings on canvas, paper and textiles. The reason for that was to educate the obsolete wall art museum and gallery audiences, that the electronic paintings constituted the original art works, and not the wall pictures.
I would still love to see this project fulfilled and not only in the museums and the fine art galleries but also on huge billboards outdoors and super large electronic screens in the bigger towns like in New York, London and Paris...Beijing, Sydney
