The result seems a potent brew of impossibly ancient mushroom based plant teachers, the expansive plains of the Mongolian-Russian border, mind searing cosmic horror, ideas concerning spiritual evolutionary ascendency, the birth of a new (‘near future retro 80s’ universe, and hyper-futuristic mind-controlled videogame brain console plugins free in packs of mango bubblegum.
RND/ In which one considers the art of bad (kitsch? camp?) #cgi found online – would make a great (deliberate) videogame aesthetic:
– Like snapshots of your pervy ex internet-startup uncle’s wet virtual daymare; often featuring either straight out porn, new age ‘Egyptian’ scenes, pool parties, obscure sci-vehicles / oddly shaped fantasy creatures, various angel themed shit or generally bizarre private Lacanian psychotherapy scenes – and always starring rich, pink skinned denizens of the uncanny valley with improbably sized breasts having endless fun in the artificial sun.
RND/ to consider potential art studies in a new age mode:
Blue Crystals Of Knowledge Emerge From Body Of Sleeping Reader
New landscapes for wanderer in search of wisdom; vast megaliths of human information moving over time – neurochemical ice flows on astral narrative plane.
The sleeper awakes feeling existentially lighter yet more solid, biomagnetically connected to their own soul data accumulation / accretion.
Inner red eye mountain mode.
Atlantis Zombie Jebus
In which to imagine a new age digital conceptual painting tentatively entitled Atlantis Zombie Jebus; a rusted partial reboot of a 70s nuclear family. In the R&D lab background hear some bad tune playing, eg. In The Year 2525 by Zager & Evans, 1969.
Christian Riese Lassen Invisible Newage Dolphins
To consider some more truly translucent digital conceptual research, based around the invisible new age dolphins and fish coral of artist Christian Riese Lassen:
To visualize the swell of a wave of translucent colour; a flaming sunset on a horizon or moon reflected on the oceans surface – endless variations created by the surge and pull of the Merman tide.
To see dolphins, whales, reef fish – an amazing panorama of underwater life; just some of the mythic wonders of Christian Riese Lassen is world renowned for recreating in his magnificent, watery art; as though the merest idea of notion of Thomas Kinkade had manifested as an entire, Maui based alternative (/to) reality.
As fellow mythic Resarcher Geoff Wode might say – “Surf’s up, Scientists!”
Etched On Geomantic Stone
Although early modern mapmaking was born of the Shogunate’s attempts to impose spatial order on their newly conquered realm, makers of printed maps and their publishers – most of whom were urban dwellers of the merchant class – provided new perspectives and creative energies that fuelled the unprecedented expansion and diversification [/of mapmaking in] the Tokugawa period
– From: Mapping In Early Modern Japan: Space, Place and Culture in the Tokugawa Period (1603-1868) by Marcia Yonemoto – bracketed emphasis mine
Example Artistic Statement
Theorist Robert What: in which any official human mapping of the landscape is also always a private cognitive mapping of Self as it indirectly mis-relates to the perceived local environment. The critical, ever present distance and tension between ancient ‘scientific’ attempts at figuring out the lay of land, and the personal, often unconscious structuring of the world as one thinks one knows it, results in a unique cartographic sorrow – a panoramic, cognitive melancholy – yet still blessed with geomantic potential for holistic enchantment. A scenario, in which such maps locally manifest to evoke both the ongoing erosion of such Cultural mapping, and the advancing radio waves and neural disturbances of scientific (/geoengineering) modernity. Featuring kanji 哀 /ai – “sorrow”; displays invisible energy nodes and lines.
The Alchemist In Ir Study
A virtual art experience
Example Artistic Statement via Theorist Robert What:
Using multiple overlayed textures from the ‘polished’ look of Doom 3; the colours are meant to evoke thousand year old lacquer jewellery boxes from Asia, containing what feel like secret ancient martial arts scrolls on advanced internal alchemy.
Theorist Robert What: welcome to The Free Jazz Bardo – where legend Charlie Parker blows his LSD sax in the outer beyond; reverberating hard bop echoes form joyous birth pangs of an intense new alien reality.
To consider such a design evokes faded Tibetan paper hanging scrolls, or tales of faded magic prayer rugs, reflecting mystical hyper dimensional deities seen in ancient Tibetan Bonpo shamanism.
The Temptation of Saint Martin
To imagine an angular visual remix of an in-concert pose of some talentless warbler – so thoroughly bland and beige, even whole legions of Roman cavalry choirs cannot save him.
