Chart Sensation

Spent the weekend with an old friend of Amy’s from Mass Art — Michael Lewy and fiancee’ Erica. Michael is a painter and photographer (samples) and… a PowerPoint artist. The app everyone loves to hate, the source of all meetings boring and tedious, the clip art of presentation software, turned on its head. I love these. Inverting the bullet-point approach of the typical business presentation and transforming it into a means of representation for the convolutions of life. Michael also paints charts, in a similar vein (one hangs in our dining room). PowerPoint, paintbrushes, whatever.

         

    

J&L books is publishing a book of Michael’s PowerPoint charts this December. Michael was kind enough to let me post five teasers here.
