Pictopoiesis version 2

I very much appreciated that my fellow student, Robin Weijers, commented on my Pictopoiesis video – his observation being that at the end of the video there needs to be a longer pause, to allow for more contemplation, before the credits come in.  Below then is version 2 with the longer pause.  

Six Persimmons

I am always interested in the divergences and convergences of different traditions of thought and philosophy, for example the Western and Eastern. My actual practice arises out of the Western tradition but my philosophical approach seems to also correspond with the notion of Tao – an Eastern concept. There is so much more to find […]

Pictopoiesis – Your Own Meaning (Mind Mirror)

Pictopoiesis – first, short (under a minute) videos
