Andrew Mezvinsky “Crude Randomness of the Mind” at Site/109
“The crude randomness of the mind” itemizes every day situations and interactions into a simple lexicon. This language of drawing is broken down into its base parts, crude and simple. The social video-‐sketches emphasize the absurdity of how things come together and then fall apart… “It is like it is.“ Every living being is constantly ‘under construction,’ but also, in a parallel fashion, always in a state of ‘constant destruction,’ as Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago said.
Each sketch is defined by its title, which is open to interpretation, though after reading the title the mind sees the dissected element in a new light. This simplified language continues the dialog with the artist in a similar way, as was approached by Barnett Newman and Clyfford Still, Frank Stella and William Kentridge.
