Referencing William Kentridge

Our Skype chat Thursday featured William Kentridge. I already knew the three videos that Jonathan presented. Below are the two Kentridge videos that I cited in my research paper. Kentridge has worked things out by filtering them through himself, not taking things second hand and because of that, he is able to talk with a […]

Unintentional Title

Almost Finished and Just Beginning – Looking at my previous post, unintentionally I have made a working title for an as-yet-untitled work, from a factual truth about its co-existence relative to another painting sitting here in the studio. Perhaps it is finished as it is. New lines of thought are opening out, this is what […]

Pictopoiesis and Practopoiesis

I much appreciated Danko Nikolic’s comment on the latest pictopoiesis video and have selected for this post a short animation which I found in my library – it comes across to me as being how the invisible activity of a (living) thought might look like, reminding me again of practopoiesis, and Danko Nikolic’s paper, How […]

Pictopoiesis version 2

Pictopoiesis – Your Own Meaning (Mind Mirror) was included in the recent MA Interim Show at Camberwell UAL. I very much appreciated that my fellow student, Robin Weijers, commented on the Pictopoiesis video  – his observation being that at the end of the video there needs to be a longer pause, to allow for more […]

Pictopoiesis – Your Own Meaning (Mind Mirror)

I particularly like making these short pictopoiesis videos because the Spark video format is simple and limited in contrast with the complexity of the painting. The below video, which has a written narrative and a minimal sound track is my submission for the upcoming interim show. Throughout the painting I had practopoiesis in mind, hence its […]

Tutorials with Gareth Polmeer

Tutorial with Gareth Polmeer: 16.00 Wednesday 13th June 2018 Today’s Skype tutorial went well. I was able to send Gareth the first draft of my research question and an abstract for the statement. I am doing much background reading on the subject of poiesis and still gathering together my main references.  I have already written […]

Actualisation

Instead of focusing on my painting as being something limited and constrained, even though it has arisen out of limitation and constraint, I have focused instead on the potential it represents. This begins with the blank white surface, a situation I have come to see in terms of the painting’s Negative Capability – the notion […]

The painting as it is now

The large painting has undergone much transformation from its simple beginnings. Its present state is: My head is overflowing with ideas as to where I can take this, so better to do a load of references in notes to self at the end of this post because writing it all up would be just too much […]

Pictopoiesis 3 – procreant

Within the tight constraints and limitations of the Adobe Spark video (free version) format I have been concentrating on trying to better co-ordinate the narration with the movement of the slide in this third pictopoiesis video, below:

Pictopoiesis 2 – shown with Pictopoiesis 1 at the Camberwell Common Room Pop up show 21st March   note to self: transitions – possible to change – experiment with different themes.
