"Rust-Stochastic 2" was a No Parking sign found in the South Loop of Chicago, IL. It was on a street near a rail corridor, which had been blocked off and abandoned many years ago. The pavement and signage had been left to the elements.

 

Metal print with mid-gloss finish reduces glare and maintains a vivid photographic rendition. Presented with ⅛" rounded corners, black edges and back, Inset 3/4" Black Metal Frame and Wire Hanger.

 

14" x 20" and larger size metal prints of this image are part of a limited edition series of 50 prints. Since the item will be produced and shipped by my third party partner, limited edition print order customers will also receive a signed, numbered authentication sticker seperately. When the authentication sticker is received, please affix it to the back of the art piece itself.

 

Stochastic

 

Many of my image titles include the word, “Stochastic.” I found the word to be fitting to describe many of my images because of the natural randomness in them which also tends to suggest a pattern to the observer.

 

Below is the beginning of Wikipedia’s article about “Stochastic.”

 

“Stochastic refers to a randomly determined process. The word first appeared in English to describe a mathematical object called a stochastic process, but now in mathematics the terms stochastic process and random process are considered interchangeable. The word, with its current definition meaning random, came from German, but it originally came from Greek στόχος (stakhos), meaning ‘aim, guess’.

 

“The term stochastic is used in many different fields, particularly where stochastic or random processes are used to represent systems or phenomena that seem to change in a random way. The term is used in the physical sciences such as biology, chemistry, ecology, neuroscience, and physics as well as technology and engineering fields such as image processing, signal processing, information theory, computer science, (including the field of artificial intelligence), cryptography and telecommunications. It is also used in finance, due to seemingly random changes in financial markets as well as in medicine, linguistics, music, media, colour theory, botany, manufacturing, and geomorphology.

 

"Stochastic social science theory is similar to systems theory.”
