A Rainbow Squared, now on Substack

Something new for Year 5

Welcome to the Substack for A Rainbow Squared!

I create 49 pieces a year, each about a color combination determined from a 7 by 7 rainbow grid:

🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪🔲 X 🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪🔲

Or, a rainbow squared.

Want to get a stop-motion photo animation and a tiny essay in your inbox about once a week? Well then:

I’ve made 49 pieces a year for 4 years, now on my 5th. In past years, I have executed the pieces in order, starting with Red Red and ending with Black White Black White. For 2021, I am producing the pieces “out of order,” or in a different order: an emergent order. Using a deck of Rainbow Squared cards, I will draw a new card each week to determine which color combination to use. I will go through the entire deck until I have made all 49 pieces for the year. 

Subscribe to find out the color combination of the week, get the latest piece sent right to your inbox, and a link to the updated color grid.
