a strong sense of the pattern (all the colors of sex)

a strong sense of the pattern (all the colors of sex)

pattern
Owned by Linda Jankowska. 33.5″ x 23″

a teacher encouraged me to make more. as much as possible. if possible everyday. and if not possible to see why not. and eliminate the situation(s) that would inhibit this way of being. With this to learn. see. experience. that the scope of my tendencies.ideas are not as significant as just doing if the two things are in conflict. constant doing. this is what to do. I saw myself seated at the same wooden table day after day. and then lived and felt that vision. and really it said it didn’t even matter when a work was done, because that is decided from within the scope of my inclinations.

I’m going to make something else now. This work is the latest of it’s line. perhaps last the last?…perhaps for now…really this decision is no matter.

Here you can see the others.

Dec. 1915

I’ve started working on illustrating a story written by Ramsey Janini, Dec. 1915.

the impossibility of returning to initial conditions

impossibility
Given to Ray Evanoff and Lauren Capone.

“Science is the study of those phenomena so crude that a return to initial conditions will cause the phenomenon to repeat itself. Nothing else in our own lives does this. It has cut itself off absolutely from the domain of our own lives.” * (Terence McKenna from the lecture “Where Does Reality Begin and End“)

I haven’t made one of these drawings for a while, but thought I would revisit this–this action/process where I am allowed to just sit and draw…

I’ve been thinking some lately about people that create work so similar throughout their lives that it could be said they’ve just been working on the same work…and I generally equate that with a kind of entropy.

BUT

now I’ve made this drawing.

It is similar to others I have made. But, I am acutely aware that some things can’t be reset, and that really a return to initial conditions is impossible. So maybe this drawing can just be a control, or a counter-point to my life the last time I made one of these last year (……..Can I get away with that?) Or maybe I just needed to set myself to work on a casual something, and this is my low gear.

(*I love science (!) and I’m sure those who are truly inquisitive about the nature of reality will crack that egg too, so it can tackle more than just crude material processes (Alfred North Whitehead has something to contribute here in his book Process and Reality).  Also, perhaps it’s worth looking at the dependency science has on reproducible results, causality, time in general. Looking at this whole time travelling slug thing might help!)

a lapse in judgement; a pretty good comic. I’m an idiot.

Drew this during my stay in Creuse, France. I was there with Distractfold and I filmed the Le Bruit de Musique Festival hosted by Lê Quan Ninh.

I was re-reading Valis and learning about the stages of decay

time traveler
At night, a tiny slug sat atop–and was illuminated by–the vast expanse of my iphone’s display…it all said everything’s going to be ok.

I was sitting outside in May and saw –just as so many people must have thought before me–that if you spend some time looking into these things that are growing that you could find deep whirlpools for your interest (the geometry of growth, the why of this or that, etc) if you wanted that, or you could just sit and more passively have an experience. Either way you could never touch bottom. Lately, when I feel myself getting pulled such a little–really, unassuming–whirlpool, I’m trying to make it a point to draw that thing that acts like a nexus, and follow it in.  Though I don’t think there is anything more authentic than interfacing with its face. It is the face of reality, infinitely authentic at every level. And also not drawing it for the sake of the depiction, but as a method to spend time out there with it.  Out there….within….I want that contour to dissolve.

Then I made a print so I could share something of it with other people. It’s a separate idea maybe, but coming from the same place. It’s like I’m pointing to the same thing the nexus opened to. Not restricted by location…a non-local…node…connection…. (And now this idea disintegrating into my own uncongealed thinking/feeling about it.)

This post is that too.
