In this series of work, Jay Kochel utilises 3D scanning, machine code and mechanised drawing to explore the aesthetics of meaning and mark making. No feeling whatsoever explores mapping unseen spectra, translating machine vision into machine drawing. This exhibition continues ongoing research into 'reading air’ as a concept and process to manifest the invisible. The foundation of this work began in Japan as a series of artificial inflatable rock gardens constructed by the artist to mimic karesansui or Zen gardens.
