Do you know what "HyGrid Unplugged" is? It's a process of creating HyGrid pieces with paper, pens, glue, glitter, pencils, crayons and whatever you have laying around. A group of people is physically gathered to scribble on a long strip of paper (we use calculator paper) until every inch of space is representin'. Then you scan it and chop it up into 100x100 squares for mass-pasting to HyGrid. You'll usually need to make a "linker" piece as a bridge from a current HyGrid piece to the handmade bit.

I've personally been in on a half-dozen of these sessions myself, only a few of which have made it to the actual HyGrid. Today, I cut up and uploaded nearly 40 pieces from a HyGrid Unplugged created in late 1998 in Portland.

You can jump right into the middle of it here: ...hygrid?center=syd056.jpg&layout=4

I really love the analog roughness of stained paper. Also, sitting around a table with a bunch of friends, a heap of drawing utensils and mugs of coffee is a lot of fun.

SYD is the ID I'm using for all "HyGrid Unplugged" uploads. If you have some multi-artist unplugged stuff you'd like to upload under SYD, get the pieces to me somehow and we'll set it up.

Even if you are working alone, hand-drawn HyGrid pieces can be a gas. Try it.

Currently, I have an unplugged set from Burning Man 1999 I still need to scan. Also, we have a free-roaming unplugged stuck into the guestbook of a Portland coffeeshop that's continually being added to by its patrons.

Here are some other "unplugged" spots of HyGrid:

...hygrid?center=syd007.jpg (Omaha, 1996)

...hygrid?center=syd103.gif (Omaha, 1996)

I'm going to try to keep all of the unplugged segments attached to one another, perhaps create a whole unplugged "neighborhood" of HyGrid.
