    Art is the future
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    Ever since I can remember I want to be an artist. Well, inventor originally, but ever since I realize what it means that you can choose what you want to be I want to be an artist. I want to be, but never got to be, or chose to be. Reality always seemed to keep me from making that choice; there were responsible choices and money to be made.

    For me art is about the future.

    Right now I could not be further from the place where I was when I originally could make the choice to be an artist; 20 years later, I have a wife and 2 children, a house and mortgage, my own (one man) design company which is doing great. If ever there was a time when I could choose without paying attention to my responsibilities, this is not it. I am not complaining. I have a great life, so lucky in so many ways. Nothing to wish for of any substance, really.

    Still I want to be an artist. (Why? dunno, let's leave that to another post) I decided some time ago that I will do this, devote some part of my time to this, just start being one. See what happens.

    The image below is Kylie Minogue, four images blended to create an ghost/ idea of Kylie and of fame/ beauty. It's the first piece I made when I decided to make art (again).

    Motto of Paradigm magazine. Via this. It really resonated with thinking about the future for me.

    There is much ahead of us. We don't know what gravity is; neither do we know the nature of heat, light and electricity. We are only animals. We are coming out of the dog stage and getting a glimpse of our environment. We don't know - we just suspect a few things. Our practice of shooting, one another in war is proof that we are animals. The make-up of our society is hideous.

    How would you feel if you had no fear? Feel like that. How would you behave toward other people if you realized their powerlessness to hurt you? Behave like that. How would you react to so-called misfortune if you saw its inability to bother you? React like that. How would you think toward yourself if you knew you were really all right? Think like that.
