Ned Richardson aka E.P.Richardson
Born 1959, Boston MA, US
Now residing Vermont, US
BA in Creative Writing Residential College, University of Michigan circa 1982.
Self taught: open source (image magick) and photoshop digital image creation/manipulation, digital music basics, web basics, some shell scripting.
Early background in stage carpentry and lighting led to a strong connection with Samuel Beckett who is an ongoing influence and informs the name lightblack - a platform originally built for video and film co-productions with the late Michael H. Shamberg, as well as these individual art/efforts.
Influences too numerous to mention, but near the foundation are Beckett, Chris Marker, George Harriman (Krazy Kat) to which I will add, provisionally, cellular automata.
I am drawn to the intersections of things, particularly where one system of understanding or interpretation fails, and another hasn't yet taken hold, or doesn't exist.
Exhibited MPG Contemporary, Boston; Turtle; an anarchic salon, Chelsea Space, London, and elsewhere across Europe and the UK; Galérie Arnaud LeFebvre, Paris.
