“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them.

“Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them.

“We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one.

“No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.” – Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun.

Cica Ghost - Beginners - Virtual Art installation

At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. and what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.”
Lemony Snicket

Music, uniquely among the arts, is both completely abstract and profoundly emotional. It has no power to represent anything particular or external, but it has a unique power to express inner states or feelings. Music can pierce the heart directly; it needs no mediation.
― Oliver Sacks, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain
Cica Ghost always has new projects on the horizon, so it’s a good idea to experience them before they are replaced with her latest work.

Reduced Territory

In City Inside Out, Haveit Neox presented an emotional contortion of space, stripping the city of indoor refuge.

Reduced Territory

Now, the distortion continues, and nature is gasping for space.. Reduced Territory, a thought provoking installation by Haveit Neox, open through August at Wolves Land. Haveit’s own vivid words at the installation add a crucial layer of insight to the work. See for yourself, while you can make it.

reduced territory

Little solace comes
to those who grieve
when thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
seems a house of leaves
moments before the wind.
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

Dreamers – A new virtual art installation

Cica ghost captures poetic moments of her whimsical creativity at Dreamers.

dreamers

I am a dreamer. I know so little of real life that I just can’t help re-living such moments as these in my dreams, for such moments are something I have very rarely experienced. I am going to dream about you the whole night, the whole week, the whole year.
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, White Nights

What is Cyberart?

A question that inspires an entire immersive project at LEA12. Asmita Duranjaya and Sable Snakeappletree explore the term “Cyberart” through thoughtful debate and complex layers of text, images, sounds, and space. Their “Paradise of CyberPolis” not only contains examples of multiple artists work, but are at the same time contained by artwork as the sim itself is a creative installation, and immersive narrative game in itself. Together these elements provoke a curiosity towards how cyberart is understood and experienced.

I think of “Cyberart” as a creative process, or event, that happens when man meets machine, that creative dance that emerges as the two collide, online, intertwining in an intermedial space that is experienced uniquely for each of us. Cyberart is open to our feedback and reflection, and to our collective collaboration, manifesting into the most subtle discrepancies or into a significantly alternative experience.

Cyberart, as a term and a creative practice, is perceived and expressed differently through the imagination of these artists, who are currently exhibiting their answers to Asmita Duranjaya’s question at LEA12:

Cyberspace

Bloom

Gracie Kendal’s Bloom, at LEA22, originally titled “Ce n’est pas encore une peinture.

“The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.” 

Chuck Palahniuk – Choke

“A great thunderstorm of sound gushed from the walls. Music bombarded him at such an immense volume that his bones were almost shaken from their tendons; he felt his jaw vibrate, his eyes wobble in his head.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

The Art of Poetry

..and Mistero Hifeng’s Poetic Art at LEA29, Cammino e Vivo Capovolto

Snapshot_053 (2)

To gaze at a river made of time and water
and remember that Time is another river.
To know we stray like a river
and our faces vanish like water.

Snapshot_097

To feel that waking is another dream
that dreams of not dreaming and that the death
we fear in our bones is the death
that every night we call a dream.

Snapshot_034 (2)

To see in every day and year a symbol
of all the days of man and his years,
and convert the outrage of the years
into a music, a sound, and a symbol.

Snapshot_030 (2)

Snapshot_091

To see in death a dream, in the sunset
a golden sadness, such is poetry,
humble and immortal, poetry,
returning, like dawn and the sunset.

Snapshot_131

Sometimes at evening there’s a face
that sees us from the deeps of a mirror.
Art must be that sort of mirror,
disclosing to each of us his face.

Snapshot_022 (2)Snapshot_026 (2)

They say Ulysses, wearied of wonders,
wept with love on seeing Ithaca,
humble and green. Art is that Ithaca,
a green eternity, not wonders.

Snapshot_102Snapshot_134

Art is endless like a river flowing,
passing, yet remaining, a mirror to the same
inconstant Heraclitus, who is the same
and yet another, like the river flowing.

Surreal Exquisite C[yber]orpse

Surreal games inspiring cyber culture

A player writes a phrase on a piece of paper, covers part of it with a fold, then passes it on to the next player, who repeats the process, passing it on to another player. The final result is a surreal merge of the players collective imaginations, an Exquisite Corpse.

exquisite corpse

Initially exquisite corpses emerged as a playful game in the form of poems, and soon evolved into a continuous interchange between the poetic and the pictorial. The co-existing Dada attitude further provoked tensions between word and image, to free them from their ordinary usages.

Exquisite corpses have been roaming the internet for years..

Exquisite corpses have inspired digital creativity; online experiments and Iphone apps, exquisite corpses that play with words, images, and sounds..

And then there’s that Exquisite Corpse that found its way into virtual space:

Im personally not a fan of zombie-fiction/popculture, but I’m happy to see that exquisite corpses are still alive, and slowly, quietly, more of them are coming.
