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 […]

Pictopoiesis 2 video

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.

Pictopoiesis – first video

Making my MPR video was a steep learning curve – which is what I like as I now have a new tool in the form of the video storytelling format. Also, I actually enjoyed doing the narration, which surprised me. My idea is to build up, improving as I go a series of very short […]

Pictopoiesis – first, short (under a minute) videos

The Mid Point review preparation introduced me to Adobe Spark, courtesy of Steph Bebbington, whose ready knowledge of such things is astounding. Gratitude to Steph! I found it very new to be working with something so already-smart as this little video generator. Thing is, all my life I have concentrated on creating paintings from a […]

Residency Reviewing

Residency Timetable Working backward in time, the latest being freshest in my mind. Featured image shows detail of a wall between Camberwell and South London Gallery, the location of our pop up show. Prior to the pizza outing (when we relaxed together at Caravaggio’s) we had had a final session togethe in which we followed […]

Post for Second Symposium

My previous post gave the background (with a lot of technical stuff too) for my exhibit at 2 Girls Gallery. The exhibit consisted of a small 25 x 25cm, oil on aluminium painting and a digital animation, duration just over 2 minutes. which I would like to demonstrate here. So please see below the two items, along […]

TIMELINE 1 – The Temporality and Potential Endlessness of the Line

Waring Rago Studio still – painting sequence captured photographically, as stills, desktop printed and laid out in sequence next to OMPHALOS by Nicholas Gulig. I have been thinking about the Line – all the things that a line is/can be/might be/represents – and in the manner of Sol LeWitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art (as Jonathan […]
