And another link

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.

Pictopoiesis and Artificial Intelligence

Reading this article, I am wondering if a program for pictopoietic thinking could ever be conceived, perhaps hypothetically. The thing is, pictopoietic thinking is living thinking, and a computer is not alive. Meanwhile, I shall carry on trying to explicate pictopoiesis and its elements as best I can. Today, in and out of the studio. The days are […]

Origin always has echo

The art of our earliest ancestors is compelling, so I was interested to look through an article (see notes at end of post) in my inbox, which has triggered the following post: Some time ago I did a series of paintings in which, amongst other matters, I was interested in trying to commune and reconnect […]

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 – 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 […]
