I ran into an old friend
She changed her name to Butter
It used to be Sally
So I said
That is a nice name Butter
Kind of soft
Her last name is Ball
So I mentioned that used to be a brand
Of a kind of turkey
She looked somewhat perturbed
That was that
She went off with her friends
I went back to the game
The quarterback’s name was Stickof, Andre Stickof.
Wow I realized that she was watching the game
On the other side of the room
She used to be a cheerleader
I guess she still is.

Documents signed she looked in the mirror
Convinced of a friends commitment
Robert shadows the conventional motorcar
With infinite patience
Con men dance upon numbers verified for purchases
Dancers replace limbs with iambic pentameter
Construction begins on a new stadium
Polls are conducted to verify popular opinion
A woman with a very straight back washes the vegetables
Sitting by the window Eliot quietly passes
I am here forever
For you to return

This is a video of the light room.........I added the LED component and this is what it looks like so far.
sorry I tried to set this up as a link but no luck so far.........just copy this URL into your browser if you would like to see the video........also I posted it in Facebook............
last night I had the idea of using the room of prints like a light box you step into.......

I made a decision to halt the print a day project for a while............I have experienced some changes lately and thought it best to reassess my daily routine........
But I am going forward on the "print room" idea......the image above are a couple of new images.......you can see one of them......top center.....mounted to the ceiling. I hope to begin the opposite wall in the next couple of days.....

Todays print........did the red and light blue on first pass then overprinted with the cobalt.
This is a project I started a couple of weeks ago........the idea is to cover the entire room with one
continuous print........I will continue to post the results as this evolves........

So I had a really interesting but brief conversation with a friend.....somehow he felt that my process of creating was somewhat unholy........and this line of persuit was akin to the some kind of demonic possession........granted this whole thing lasted a couple of minutes.......he also said it made him very depressed for a week.
This to me is interesting, scary, and extremely interesting. The fear of the unknown was my first response. We know that burning wood yields heat. Yet is understanding the mechanics of the action somewhat unholy or the work of evil?
I think his point is that if an action is done without love than it is an evil intention. The definition of love here is the key I think. I think in his perception love is an action which in some way does not hurt the person loved. Therefore a lie is justifiable in order to protect the innocence of the intended. The "truth" becomes trivial in this case. So science or knowledge is at risk for being ungodly or a threat to that psychological self justification.
I am writing this now because I fear that mankind can soon go through a wave of regression due to events in the future. I already see a huge backlash against science and technology in a time where it is desperately needed.
If my work correlates to the psychological underpinnings of human behavior......how can it be a threat? Because it is a threat to the self rationalizations which justify demonizing seeing beyond the conventions created to mitigate the fear of self or the fear of the unknown.

this morning I had a strange dream........I was driving in a horse drawn carriage away from an event......the sky was overcast and grey.......the clouds opened up a bit......saw sun.........then felt what I could only describe as a heart attack......I saw my hand as I reached up for the sun......I knew it was my death........
And felt like this entire life was part of that moment......like a test I had to go through to get to that point......
then I was in a tunnel of images.........super fast and intense.......houses, pictures.......thousands of them in a moment passing by me..........I can sort of remember the feeling of just letting go of what I was seeing and going with it......

About new beginnings.........and endings which must happen for new beginnings to begin.......
About dreams and ambitions........and what they tell us about ourselves now, not when those ambitions are
About being and feeling right now that you are in the right place, that life has a deeper meaning than the aquisitions which give us the hope that we can somehow become who we are meant to be.
