The Shining Through

The pale light of yesterday is the illusion to be dispelled. The shining through illuminating all is not a diurnal time sense. That incandescent transparency always is. There is no slippage between today and tomorrow, like you thought. Nothing to dispel, although it appears so. You stood around, ad-libbing the witness. Yet you clung to …

Alone Together at Café Café

Alone Together at Café Café  There is music playing everywhere. A young couple, alone together at Café Café Prague discuss their living arrangements. Plan next departures with built-in rendezvous points, all the while dreaming alternate lines of flight they never speak about. An author of some renown scribbles notes as she listens to the conversations …

Daily Notes 001 (February 17, 2024)

These daily notes (maybe not so daily, however) are as much notes-to-self as the usual blogging (ad)venture, random shout-outs, or serious revelations. More like reminders to take ‘note of it,’ jot it down before you forget, and come back at some other time to ponder, elaborate, or even delete. So, in terms of my ongoing …

MetaWhimsical Fragments & other poetical ditties

Hey Chaze, don’t you know… There are dimples in your perception, Doubts and ditties too profound to mess with. Take cover in the undertow, my friend! Gnostic fabulation is all the rage these days, Takes the edge off indirection and misdeeds, It’s not time yet to proceed so take the temporary route. Be radically temporal …

Art Making through Thinking Feeling Sensing and Intuition

I am exploring thinking, feeling, sensing and intuition as a visual artist, engaged with the concepts of diffraction, becoming abstract, assemblage as per Delueze, Barad, Grosz. Do these ideas and authors discuss “feeling, sensing and intuition” through those concepts? Yes, the concepts of diffraction, becoming abstract, assemblage, and the authors you mentioned all touch upon …

Mondrian’s Window

Mondrian’s Window is a multi-layered, multi-media painting that draws upon the work of several seminal artists. The piece begins with an abstracted black lattice that pays homage to the renowned work of Piet Mondrian. However, the traditional sense of order and structure is disrupted, and instead, we are presented with a fractured, fragmented version of …

Figments, Fragments, and Fractures in the Matrix

  Canto 1 There are dimples in your perception, Doubts and ditties too profound to mess with. Take cover in the undertow! Gnostic fabulation goes a long way these days, Takes the edge off indirection and misdeeds. It’s not time yet to proceed, so Take the temporary route, Be radically temporalizing in your deliberations, Seek …

Prolegomina to a new blog series

I promised myself a new blog posting, a series actually, tied together (however loosely) by some kind of thematic frame. Given my semi-disciplined mind, this endeavour does require a structure, a frame to contain the chaos, focus the irrruptions, gather the threads into some manner of a weave. However, not a frame story, not a …
