Sir Cuts A Lot is the colloquial name for my plotter printer (cutter) which is the intermediary for the next show at Fastnet. Sir Cuts A Lot uses software called Sure Cuts A Lot ®.
Artists, architects, writers, and other professionals have been invited to submit works in the form of a vector file.
Plotters were the first graphic output printers appearing in the late fifties (Calcomp 565). They were replaced during the Miami Vice Period by the cheap inkjet printer. More recently, “plotters” have reappeared as “vinyl cutters”. In many cases, the blade can be substituted for a pen.
The plotter is a human armature – an idiosyncratic form of mark making. Sir Cuts A Lot can be pleasantly unpredictable – due in part to its humble origins in mainland China. It chooses seemingly arbitrary paths yet repeats operations in exactly the same sequence. SCAL is a curious seismic device that crudely and beautifully merges the architectonic with paper and ink.
Exhibition open intermittently on weekends (12 - 3pm)
