[10Apr23] I have had something of an obsession with Mondrian for most of my adult life. I cannot recall when it started or why — I think I just realised that I have an affinity with his work.
I began a web site on the subject at around the turn of the century and reorganised it all in 2009. I invented a way of identifying the rectilinear primary-coloured grids and in 2017 started a new web site based on this Blackburn-Mondrian Index.
In 2014 I wrote a booklet, The Missing Mondrians.
Downstairs front windows,
In 2010 and after I took some courses in stained glass and fused glass. I realised that Mondrian's rectilinears were an ideal subject for glasswork and the house now features several, large and small.
The original notion for the windows at the front of the house was that the neighbours and passers-by would benefit from a Mondrian light show every night when we turned the lights on.
The exact opposite has been the case. We benefit from a changing light show inside every time there is bright sunlight. I photographed some sunrise time-lapses for the EyV degree module
