Watch a single cell become a complete organism in six pulsating minutes of timelapse. The above, endlessly inspiring and informing in ways relevant to pictopoiesis – what wondrous things there are to see online!
As in, how to continue the Six Persimmons painting now at the stage shown below. I am thinking about how the internal dialectic of the painting might be explicated in terms of it being a sublation. What is happening here has correspondence with Hegel’s term, Aufheben. I see numerous correspondences between pictopoiesis and other fields of thought and […]

A cogitation on the painting, facilitated by the digital tool: notes to self: see symmetry, sublation, coalescence
Why symmetry gets really interesting to physics when it is broken. What principle(s) underlying physics also underpin the painting? Considering symmetry in contemplating the animation – to try to decode and further explicate pictopoiesis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symmetry

Link to Edmark M. Law’s interesting and lively blog, Learn Fun Facts I follow his blog; latest post concerning the letter M, which I alighted on as a (kind of) inversion of the letter W at the end of writing in this recent post.
There is a lot of really good reading out there giving information, insight and food for thought into how/why things are as they are “out there”. From online journals HYPERALLERGIC and AEON: Whys of Seeing Regarding art as a commodity image: some ongoing botanical cultivations in the studio
“And then it struck me” (previous post). I knew that phrase but couldn’t remember exactly from where, and then I remembered that is was from the famous Negative Capability letter of John Keats”. The notion of Negative Capability is something which I have applied to my painting, in pictopoiesis, and I wrote about this in […]
