The Pollockizer
2013
Planning, Design, and Construction of the Pollockizer
for C'mon Language at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art

 


Sketch Plan
The Pollockizer was first thought up by Richard Taylor who led a workshop at PICA as part of the
C'mon Language Exhibition. Designed in collaboration by Anna Craycroft and Sam Loper, the Pollockizer included a wooden frame, paint bucket, paint nozzle, and rope and pulley system.

Building the Pollockizer
Wooden frame with pulley system to lower and raise paint bucket. Bucket is a tin paint can
with custom nozzle for adjusting the amount of paint drip on each painting.

The Pendulum
Designed to swing around with the movement of the pulley or by tapping it with your hands.

Using the Pollockizer to create paintings.
Attendees were asked to swing, knock, push, and control the Pollockizer however they wanted to create their paintings.
