CYlent Blackout Poem: On Being and Nothingness

On Being and Nothingness

– A CYlent Blackout Poem –

She will apprehend transcendence.

It is a certain art form

an idea and

a negation of that idea;

the double property of human reality.

Cylent - Being and Nothingness I  by www.cybertwigs.com

What I really am

is my transcendence.

I escape myself,

I can feel that I escape myself.

Transcendence changed

into infinity of excuses.

Cylent - Being and Nothingness II

“On Being and Nothingness” CYlent I & II are a remediation of Jean-Paul Sarte’s Being and Nothingness, p. 98,99.

The term “CYlent” refers to a creative effect using lenticular motion images specifically designed to be viewed within virtual spaces by avatars (Cyber + Lenticular = CYlent).

“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.

Strings (Exploring Creative Virtual Spaces)

Strings by Cica Ghost. A creative new installation that merges whimsical charm with a thoughtful musical backdrop, highlighting Vitamin String Quartet. Cica’s lovely scenes are a joy to explore especially with the accompanying music.

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.

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

Cyberspace

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:
