tauba auerbach is a san francisco born artist who visually explores chaos theory: she tries to find order in that which is seemingly random. my favorite works of auerbach’s search for intentionality in tv static.
imagine my delight when i discovered that auerbach is bffrs with the very talented cameron mesirow of glasser, and actually designed the cover of glasser’s apply ep.
the album cover is a part of auerbach’s shattered glass series. to make these works, auerbach places large glass panes on top of a panel and covers them with a sheet of cardboard. she is unable to see the fractures created when she strikes them—ostensibly creating random designs in the glass’s surface. removing the glass fragments one at a time, she fills in the area beneath each shard with a single hue.
