Welcome to Open Studio! Bring your willingness to enter other possible realities for if you think you are being invited into a display space, a room, or a studio—not this time.
Fancy that you find yourself in a long hallway with a variety of doors. The paintings are not things, object or even paintings but doors without handles or knockers. Each is a journey. It was a journey to create the door and now depending your levels of perception the doors offer another journey. It does, however, take a suspension of consensus reality. Can you imagine that you are not looking at material or commodities?
Dreamtime Meets Linear Time Diagram
It is a creative process stretching from what we think we know into the willingness to engage not-knowing. This is the only approach I have found to Wobbling the Paradigm. Wobbling is an asymmetrical movement loosening the beliefs that keep us moored to what brought us into this corner of global calamity. Slow down, it takes time for your eyes to adjust to the metaphoric dark. It takes time for the old lenses to adjust to what is there. I wish that I could show you through the door, but by the grace of the gods I have found my way to the door, the rest is up to you. The statement at each door may help, even if it is a revolving door that shoots you back to where you started. Usually when a group of work is shown together, they have a visual continuity. There is a container that holds them in a theme. This year the pieces reflect a process which means they are not duckies lined up, but a ride. The visuals are only the invitation to possible adventure into other ways of seeing, perceiving and believing. This is not radically unusual in the visual arts, but you can miss it.
Qubit, Quantum Computer of Possibilities
We are working with the psyche, which although it seems to be integrated, it functions beyond linear time or space. How we perceive the thread relating to now is helpful. The formulas on the Blackboard Series may be of some help. The first comes from a renegade physicist, Fred Allen Wolf who proposes that the idea of sacred time, dream time or creative flow cannot be factored into a linear equation.
Uncertainty equal absolute value time impact time cost minus benefit
Because it is not of the past or future. Wolf conceives of it as a circle that rolls along the timeline and where it touches is the now. In the second piece the diagram, also by Wolf demonstrates quantum computer that is not binary and does not function with memory but possibility. The third mathematical equation is for uncertainty from research biologist Michael Dickinson working with drosophila, fruit flies on decision making.
