What Is, Evokes What Was

I've been studying the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. This caught my eye after I created the images ... "Jung saw Introverted Sensing as something of an oxymoron: sensing, which is a perceiving function, focused inward and thus away from that which is perceived (the "object"). In this light, he described this sensing as something removed from reality, full of archetypes/mythical figures/goblins; sensing of one's own set of forms."

The further I go
The stronger the memory

i am living in the “sitte&sexus” theme, since a while, forever, right now. my partner and i, we`re not only painting and writing this theme, we`re living it. am “thinking” in “sitte&sexus”, these two archetypes, and every work i start, however far away i meant its to be from this theme, in the end its closer than the one before.

[curator note, see "About the Artists" section for more on "sitte& sexus."]

I've been thinking about the everyday sights and scenes we look at mostly with glazed over, tired eyes. How if we look more closely, there is beauty all around us.

“Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him. …I’m writing you today, to formally request that this alternative theory be taught in your schools, along with the other two theories.”
From an open letter to the Kansas School Board by the members of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

On my mind are these passages from "The Undefended Self" by Susan Thesenga.
"The state of relaxed openness to the cosmic flow of life is rare, as our usual condition is a contracted  state of fear and refusal to surrender our pride and self will. So we all live in various stages of numbness, unavailable to the full pulsation of our life force. ...
And yet since human beings cannot live without pleasure we find our pleasure in what is familiar, in states of agitated overactivity or will-less passivity. And because we are defended against the tender and vulnerable flow of our inner sensations and feelings, we become addicted to an intense level of external sensory stimulation. The more numb we are to the vulnerable flow of inner experience , the more we will intensify the external assault on our senses in order to feel something. Or we find pleasure in being completely passive and taken care of by others. These false or partial pleasures are never deeply satisfying, but until we learn how to relax into our deeper selves, we stay hooked on the pattern of alternating high intensity with passive collapse."

My mind is generally empty when I make art, but I've been thinking mostly about the march of time. As always. [ well as wretched home-wreckers with names like Brandi.]

for Nick, Where Indeed...

Necessity is the mother of invention. Where does it all come from? I once answered an interview question, that yoga helps me keep my connection with creativity. Who knows? But the ideas come when you ask and you hope some of them are decent.

Why is this entry coming to me with an Irish accent in my head?!

And a comment on last week:

I really liked your (Peter Ferko) piece last show about the Polish artist.
I think that this - his attitude - is the future of art.
Art for family, or friends, or community, or city, or world (people have different levels of callings) - stuff that will be solution oriented. Art will find its value in terms of how deeply it touches the intended audience - and the depth of change toward a better tomorrow that occurs.
People will support it, because they will really want to, because it made their lives better, and they want to experience this more often. It will be more like buying gas for the car (for their community) than it will acquiring possessions. Being an artist will become more of a blue collar kind of a job - with every community supporting many - all of whom are inspiring future generations, to think along visionary lines.
Society will get really cool. Much more personal and sexy.
Communities will become breeding grounds for genius. I think that we are literally swimming in potential genius and solutions, just no one inspires people to think, take responsibility, and express. Everyone holds everyone else back instead. No one shouts YES!, but rather looks for reasons to say no.
That's because this time has been all about power, money and control - being cynical -and creative expression always reflects its time and place.
The next big thing is everybody.
