Dialogue with Andrew Woolbright in The Brooklyn Rail

Read a recent dialogue I had with artist Andrew Woolbright, just published in the March edition of The Brooklyn Rail.

On Andrew's prompting, I made a new Barricelli image of cellular automata to illustrate the piece. Andrew gave me a custom color palette to use, and I tweaked the parameters to better sync with the conversation (particularly the bit about smooth vs. striated).

This was recorded in person straight to tape, so please excuse all my disorganized grammar!
