ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original “idea sketch” next to a finished piece. This week, Rick Silva illustrates his work process — “encounters between the tools of digital communication and the unbuilt environment.” He makes new media landscapes on site and is currently exhibiting at TRANSFER gallery in Brooklyn.

For the enpleinair.org site/series I take my laptop into the wild and create animations and images in response to the immediate terrain and elements.
