Sometimes a deep sleep comes without dreams
The artist's eye is always tracing, like a program, always absorbing bits of data to be processed.
Nearly infinite computing power now exists on demand within the cloud, processing well over 1 million petraflops of data per second.
The artist makes connections via tacit, illicit, catharcist, or possibly intelligble relationships. It is in this way, the artist is ahead of machine learning, big compute is unable to keep up with the seemingly random process by which a connection can resolve.
it is by the artist's hand that meaning can be derived from the ever changing and evolving data sources around us.
We must remain keen and sharp to these changes, the zeitgeist of the internet age is the replacement of the human touch with repeateable processes.
Sadly I must confer that through technology, I have in fact found a repeatable pattern to my own work, the paths through darkness always lead me to the same light. I must also confess that I am drawn into these repeatable processees.
I fear that ultimtely in the end, the futility of trying to make anew from what is already new is a task only left for the cleverest of minds. I have become fully vested in the mindshare that the artist, through her/his whim can only create from what is known in their own time and what has come before. And in this way is locked into that time, indefinetely.
The only way for the artist to continue to make work that is relevant after their own mortality, is to have passed down the process, the soul of the artists will always remain in the how the work was made.
At this point the remaining dilemna in making is the paranoia of having the IP stolen. This is also true of tech, however it should be said that no matter the length of the theft, the true master knows that only they can complete the work as they had already seen it.
All that being said, I seek to become more than my own mortality and to give you the filter by which I create my work. In this way, although we may have never met, you can share in my making process, and see things that you have taken with your lens, through mine.
This is all I wanted to say, the rest is self explanitory
