What does intelligence look like?

This post is informed by the Antikythera Studio webinar and the Cognitive Infrastructures theme. The Antikythera Studio will be at Central St Martins this Summer, where the MA Visual Arts, Fine Art Digital course, from which I graduated in 2019, is now based. MIND MIRROR – step back and breathe in the atmosphere of your own […]

Poem a Day

As a start to the day, I love to receive these poems, courtesy of the Poetry Foundation, and this one, along with so many others I have received, is beautiful: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poetrymagazine/poems/157534/christos This led me to prompt the ever-so-popular AI bot (see below dotted line at the end of this post) which always gives me a […]

Titles for paintings

I have added dimensions and current titles to the images in the previous post.

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 […]
