Abridged 0 – 73: Stephanie Gaumond – Stutter Shimmy Shutter

Stutter Shimmy Shutter uses visual notations that have been devised to instruct physical and corporeal experiences to explore the possibility that exists between the notation and the user.

These notations contain coded instructions of how to play music, perform a dance, make sound, create an object. Like maps, they guide us but do not exist when we arrive at our destination. The alchemy and the humanity lies in the connection.

The ongoing series of screen printed kinetic diagrams currently features 14 patterns in editions of 20 for a total of 280 prints. Each is printed on Hahnemühle 310gsm paper and measures 28.5 x 17.5 cm.

Stephanie Gaumond is a printmaker raised in Denver, Colorado amidst the beautiful Rocky Mountains and the banal suburban architecture. Her work explores patterns and coded communication. She received her BA Fine Art from the University of Denver in 2010 and her MA in Printmaking from the Glasgow School of Art in 2012. She is currently based in Derry/Londonderry N. Ireland.
