Hmmm? Now, what exactly is this Land of Synesthesia? Good question. I needed to look that one up.
Here’s what I found…
- The production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body.
- The poetic description of a sense impression in terms of another sense, as in “a loud perfume.”.
Ahhh… the world at my fingertips… via Google.
Zengirl dropped that one on me and I liked it. Smart girl. Great vocabulary. Quick.
But, while I could wax poetic for quite some time on the genius and intellect of my beloved, I gotta get to the art stuff. And it’s pretty cool stuff I think.
These were done from the most recent session of spray blasting. Sort of born of another idea virus Zengirl infected me with. A different way to assemble the work. Smaller chunks from bigger pics. Designed with video in mind. Pairs of works created from rearranging the same sub-particle… so to speak.
Trippy? Of course they are. Loaded with symbols, totemic figures and faces, ancient, mystical things. All quite by accident. The result of randomness in the process, the one million micro decisions that go into any creative act and a good dose of opening the space to the creative nature of the Great Energy Field that holds everything together. Well, kinda together. Actually everything is in constant flux and flow and evolution. Yes, yes it is.
I did make a little video from some of these. It is quite cool and a very psychedelic experience and trust me, I barely know what I’m doing with the iMovie program. But it is cool and motion adds quite the other element to these. I also think they also just shimmer in the mushrooms-at-dusk-on-a-summer-evening way.
So let me get to the art…. these are Untitled works. I have decided, that at least for this project, the works will not be titled in some mad way like “The 13th Note of the Flute of Evermore, the Sighing Jester” or some other such nonsense. Although I sort of like that nonsense. Actually, that title is one of the bonus track songs on the Staggering Masterworks: A History of Rush 24 disc compilation that I recently received as a gift from Daffy.. But, no, for this project I’d like to limit any kind of influence that can be inferred and subconsciously implanted in the viewers over amped cranial nugget.
The real question is, as always… What Do YOU See?
Let’s find out… “Pairs: Untitled 1”
And now, “Untitled 2″…
And, the last pair for this post… “Untitled 3”
As always, enjoy and please, tell us what YOU see…
Yours in the creative joy… of playing in the mud….
P.S. And of course, so much gratitude and love for my Zengirl. Thank you for all that you are and do.
