“Quinta del Sordo”

Goya has always been a favorite of mine, and I often reference him when writing about narrative. “Saturn devouring his Son”, was the inspiration behind my work with monsters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to paint; I feel like “dog” may lead to a new series of work.

my new classroom

You are my classroom now. I’m teaching myself physics…its research for the book I’m writing. Yes, I’m writing a book. Sci-fi actually. I’m planning on giving it to William Gibson, in which case he’ll help me turn it into a best seller, in which case I’ll live happily ever after.  The problem that I am having however is this…physicists give the worst examples… I mean if you can’t offer a decent metaphor just explain it in words. I guess that’s what Shatner, Gibson…and oh perhaps one day myself (pfft) are all for. Anyways, I’m learning about entropy.  Despite the horrific examples it’s quite interesting. Entropy explains that order becomes disordered when put into an isolated system.  Hmmm… now listen to this by Eric Lerner ” Since the second law says that entropy necessarily increases with time, and thus the past and future differ, the second law, too, is contradicted. In relativity theory, for example, time is simply the fourth dimension – there is no more difference between past and future than between left and right. There is no flow of time: all the equations would look the same if time were reversed.”
A question…how is anything ever really truly isolated? Or is it simply based on a scale structure? Which is interesting when you think about population, and the types of cultural tendencies that are built around dense and sparsely populated societies.

perhaps a little Jean Arp as well? dada. (for you s)

I can’t move forward with the dictionary (401 project) until I solve a presentation problem with myself. The question is; Do I make my own website, or use the wiki?

To understand my question, I first must explain my piece so far. The point of this piece is to create an emphasized subjective-reality, (I’m aware of the paradox in putting subjective and reality together, it’s the point, to put emphasis on the ironic truth) it’s basically another view or an abstracted view of the world of narrative. The words are facts interpreted through subjective thoughts, arguments, and situations. The point of view is stressed through the element of colour, each colour is a single facet, it stands as a cognitive embodiment of expression. Each coloured expression reveals a perspective and a list of words. These words are put in particular lists because they share fibers that fall suite to that particular facet revealed through the mood of the colour. Now, that’s not to say that one word can only fall suit to one colour, they can be expressed through multiple colours, this is what makes up the irony, the putting together of two (or more) truths. So far, they’ve developed a surprisingly funny dialogue, I’m considering putting some of it together for a play, which would un-abstract (is there an actual term I could use here? perhaps reconstruct? but that doesn’t work as it implies that it was deconstructed, which it isn’t it was simply translated into a new identity) from the alternate view of narrative that I have created. Now this is where my question comes in, if I leave it in it’s wiki-state, it will be at it’s purest form, it will exist as cognitive exploration through software  that was made with the intention of collective understandings, and differences in mind. The concept of wiki software is like the bottom layer or skeleton of the concept. However if I make my own website, it will follow the specific narrated design plan needed to convey a more horizontal hierarchy, which would relay the point most effectively. This is important because, I guess it would reveal my own opinion as the artist, it would make the entire thing have a signiture moral or viewpoint. My own reasons for creating this piece is based on my feelings, that there is no value in being ignorant. The egocentric or ethnocentric mentality, will only be lost and celebrated among those of your colour, and will only represent a theory of the truth, therefore the more worldly your view is, the more applicable it is to reign truth.

So do I create a narrative? or do I set the stage? Which brings me to this, is it possible to simply just set the stage? I guess it depends on what my narrative is. I’ve been stumped on this for weeks.
…I’m not sure if any of that makes sense.

anyways, here it is if you want to look
