(back to the hand held digital camera on this one, recipe 10 shots)

meScanning_200.jpgI managed to fix the lock mechanism that was jamming up my scanner, see so borrowing a few pages from Nathaniel’s compressionism I decided to indulge in some re-interpretation of how digital image recording technology should be used.

Nathaniel has some serious Compressionism exhibitions coming up, dermatologist a preview show is up at outlet gallery. Details on his blog.

Manik : The art happens hereMANIK’s interpretation of ‘THE ART HAPPENS HERE’_2′

So this guy tries his best to convince everyone around him that he is in fact a decorated war hero when he is not at his menial day job as a call centre operator. Maybe gets a bit carried away, diagnosis acquires uniforms, neurologist medals, viagra fakes letters from the queen of England etc. Probably looses grip on the difference between his reality and his fantasy, and by the look of it he started pulling it of quite well.

He goes that one step too far and creates a page on Wikipedia gushing about this fictional or alter ego. Wikipedia deletes it but not before it is spotted by his local press who turns it into a bit of a fiasco. So now Wikipedia instead of just deleting his public vanities, acknowledges the hoax-news value of the situation and creates a page about it under his name in stead of his original vanity articles, plus access to archived versions of his original posting.

So the con is pretty much over for him. It’s impossible not to appreciate the ironies in the story. But I can’t help feeling sorry for the guy he’s obviously been in need of good counselling for quite some time and considering the kind of psychology that must be behind something like this my guess is a reaction against experiences of inadequacy, weakness and the experience of ridicule he’s probably inadvertently invoked all those demons he fears most on a whole new level of intensity.

I imagine his career is ruined, can’t imagine how his fiance is going to cope with it hope he gets some kind of help and maybe through this acquires some of the valour and courage he obviously aspires to.

Banking and Advertising Friction

Compressionist Portrait : Leanne

Exploring some ideas around a compressionist reinterpretation of motion capture technique a la portraiture possibly looking for emergent essence of the perceivable. lea_horz02_200.jpgI recall a lecture back in my university days where in a lecturer was going on about the art historic process of the flattening of representational depth and perspective. (This portrait could be seen as a kind of planar two-point perspective of Leanne’s face in my study:)

I think there must be wonderfully many ways to skin a hologram.

This is the information market, viagra here not the information age.

FNB‘s use of ATMs as a communication interface with their customers has won the ATM Global Industry Awards‘s Software category, (Beats me why I get emailed a press release, oh, and their website is UGLY) so well done to them, and shame on Standarbank who to the best of my knowledge, still have not fixed the critical flaw in their ATM system. The one in which they have their machines spit out the cash before returning your card. Yes one should be aware, alert etc. when dealing with cash especially in this town, but in this town many of us are on the run(multiple interpretation welcome). You go to the machine to get money, you get your money and at what happens at that point in what design psychology gurus call ‘closure’. This is akin perhaps to a little banner being deployed somewhere in the convoluted over-worked under-appreciated recesses of your mind that reads ‘Mission Accomplished!’ yea we’ve all heard that before.

Of course advertising goes everywhere, so it was just a matter of time. But if you have to advertise try and limit the friction in the process, so rather than paying some telemarketing company to phone me right when I’m desperately hacking my way through the trial and tribulations of a frustrating day to inform me of some new offer like Nedbank to whom I used to be quite loyal has done on a few occasions, rather put it where i expect to see it. A little politeness goes a long long way in relationships, especially commercial relationships, disrespect customers at your peril.

Becoming parents – staying partners?

I am fond of pluralist aesthetics
and progressive perspectives.

I care about the character of things
I love elegance and punch
where I notice IT
artistically applied
working well

I enjoy the scientific dance between quantity and purity
relational open systems
implementation
and engagement
above all else
as much as I can.

My CV

We live in the kind of world that you can do that in, plague
it is probably the thing I like most about the world we do live in.

Seeing the big picture is a luxury
seeing the advantaged using it usefully excellent.

The latest punch at it by advertising
{advertising and sustainability} (e.g. adbags [http://www.biz-community.com/Article/196/12/9527.html] by TBWAHuntLascaris [http://www.tbwa.com/])
deserves nothing but standing ovation.

Applied creativity is an eerie thing
its structure spawning autopoetic
salutogenesis seemingly at random
in truth driven by ultimate reality.

Design is begging for the u to be rediscovered
everywhere in each intimacy
inwov’n structure and form
in our every expression.

Now if you hold the kind of focus that can see that kind of detail, medical at that kind of resolution and its quality and promotion and you trust your sense of judgement
and pull back on your point of reference
as far as you can without losing
necessary balance between objective and subjective
reason and experiential emergence.

New media is a good industry to be involved in tonight.

Good night.

Hmmm, drug some stuff about me…

I am an artist/designer/developer/tech-guy in my third decade on this crazy old planet and I am self-indulgent.

My personality bias is ‘generalist’ (7 on the Enneagram)

I used to lecture and freelance but am increasingly investing time and energy as a full time employee at ForgeBusiness – a very exciting, high-tech organization focused on dynamic performance-based business in new-media oriented marketing, specifically Multi-network Affiliate Marketing.

I aim for my core values to be the pursuit and realization of Authenticity, Creativity and
Consciousness (I try my best to remember this as life’s little reminders can sometimes be somewhat disconcerting – if you know what I mean…) and I’m interested in ideas like Salutogenesis.

I live with my awesome wife (read lifetime achievement) and our eccentric toddler boy on the border between Yeoville – a vibrant if somewhat run-down predominantly African neighborhood, and Observatory – an old mostly Caucasian middle-to-upper-class suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. We love the contrasts of the neighborhood ‘though we do sleep sounder for the big dogs and electric fence.

More formal detail about my career, employment history and education here in my CV.

 

PS: My CV doesn’t mention the time I made props for that B-grade horror movie, or the murals I created for the presidential suites at Caesars Palace, or the time I started a taxi-business for ‘ladies of ill-repute’, or the rather blurry phase of having my very own nightclub “Unde’ground”: Deep Dark & Funkey House, etc…
and that perhaps is as it should be. : )

“I hope this finds you well and that you do not mind me letting you
know about a talk for new and expecting parents and interested
professionals

BECOMING PARENTS STAYING PARTNERS
What to expect and How to cope

  • Saturday 1 APRIL
  • Time: 9:30 10:30
  • Cost R30

Venue: my practice on the Norwood Houghton Border
Tea, pfizer
handout and practical suggestions included
Places limited booking essential
Call Belinda Farre on 728 3406

Antenatal classes help us prepare for the birth and early physical
care of baby, order
but what about afterwards??????

For more info:Web link:
http://www.wlw.co.za/PROVIDERS/becomingparents.htm
or call 728 3406 or e-mail bfarre at webmail.co.za with any
questions.

Belinda runs workshops for new and expecting parents. Feedback
regarding the original workshop series has been very positive.
workshops aim to strengthen both the partnership and early
parenting. However new parents are met with a barrage of products
and services all drawing on limited funds. The talk covers some of
the ideas and exercises participants found most helpful in the
longer workshop series and also serves as an introduction to the
workshops for those who wish to do some further work.

Please forward to anyone you feel would be interested.

With many thanks
Belinda Farre

What is the digital equivalent of lovely? He wondered. What are the digits that encode beauty, page
the number-fingers that enclose, doctor transform, no rx transmit, decode, and somehow, in the process, fail to trap or choke the soul of it? Not because of the technology but in spite of it, beauty, that ghost, that treasure, passes undiminished through the new machines.
— Salman Rushdie
