Subject description: Fracturing images and quoting Max Ernst
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

"By as early as 1912, Ernst is said to have been struck by the realization that technical imagery may appear near abstract to the untrained eye." A discussion of Max Ernst's piece "Farewell My Beautiful Land of Marie Laurencin" in *Dada in the Collection of the Museum of Modern Art*, 2008. These images are from my own ongoing work in fracturing "real" and "virtual" images.

70% of my students this semester are digital arts majors learning to write creative graphical code. I am doing more visual work these days than music, but can't wait to get back to that.

Nice frackings, how do you do them?

Also I've found the remark from the Ernst discussion interesting, as I've always liked the abstraction of technical drawings that I was unable to understand (like at an early age the study books of my dad (he was not too happy tho with me coloring those nice images Laughing )).

Hi Jan.

Those are screen shots from the generative program with which I created this video and also this video. I use geometric paintbrushes that are sometimes stationary and sometimes mobile, but most of my work is manipulating the canvas after it has been painted, by scaling it, rotating it, reflecting it, moving it around, and shearing (stretching) it. The still shots in the original post are shears, where the 2 paintbrushes are actually recursive snapshots of the canvas a 60th of a second prior, sort of a hall-of-mirrors effect. The two pics here are from the same program over a year ago, although I have enhanced it since then. I did a lot of that coding in January 2017 when I was bedridden half of every day with the shingles -- not sure if shingles is an international term, but basically, what you get as an old fart if your had chicken pox as a kid.

When my kids were little and they saw a book I had underlined, they'd always say that I had soiled it. Shit on it, I guess.

Have a good weekend. Smile
