IAPETUS SONG

July 24, 2008 | Filed Under art, big ideas, music, poetry, space | Leave a Comment 

New poem/song lyrics - - I’ve been working on this off and on for a while, and I think it’s just about finished.  I started setting it to music last night and it’s coming together nicely.  I’m looking forward to recording it.  Feedback is welcome.

 

EXPECTANT, SHE CONSIDERS IAPETUS FROM ABOVE

Watching as you turn below
and I’m encircling you
olive wreath
your new mountain heath
the first thing
the greatest
fresh grown

As below, now so above
a vessel brimming in love
now within
she’s roving and turning again
she’s a lion
an ibis
a dove

Iapetus! O’apetus!
Once, Again, and Once again
Iapetus! My’apetus!
Thrice great, Ao! Ao! Ao!

I’m just one of your satellites
but here I can see so far
so let us sing
of Saturn’s rings
harmonious
together
inclined

I thought I felt my cells divide
my life diverging to lives
soon I’ll bloom
like your original plume
first warm water
then fire
then ice 

 

If anyone is looking for some interesting reading, this crazy-ass article is what sparked my original interest in Saturn’s “moon” Iapetus, and relatedly, wikipedia’s take on panspermia/exogenesis and hermeticism.

ADVICE FOR WHEN YOU TAKE A WALK

June 5, 2008 | Filed Under art, job responsibilities, seen | Leave a Comment 

on a walk

 

post-it note, 3×3″ - pen, highlighter

there is a stretch on durant place where the sidewalk is canopied by a series of low hanging trees that are fully filled out with early summer green.  i’ve gotten into the habit of looking straight up as I walk under them on my way home from the park in the late afternoon or early evening, and it really is a pretty visually interesting experiment.  there are layers of really close leaves with really far away leaves moving behind them… 3D!  and then the huge trees beyond that make the sky look pixelated.  i saw a bird’s nest.  it makes me feel like a camera in a movie.  it also makes me remember how beautiful it is out there.  ((in the world.))

drew this at work, in anticipation of a long walk after work.  now i’m home, and going.

framed

just finished framing these up!  this is my “aesthetic phonetic” project - it will be on display at WonderRoot Community Arts Center for the month of June.  They will be on sale, too - - cheap.  I’m thinking of setting the price with a deal if you buy multiples - i.e: $30 each, $100 for four.  

There will be a closing reception on June 28.  If you have any doodle-loving friends, let them know!

this chupacabra, with multi-jointed floppy arms, dances ecstatically by the light of a full moon as part of a seasonal ritual known as “the quesadilla party”.  this is the first time this secret gathering has ever been drawn on a post-it note by someone at work.

LET’S GO TO THE BEACH, OK? OK! OK? OK!

May 8, 2008 | Filed Under art, fantastic weekend, get outta here, music, poetry | Leave a Comment 

we’re going to the beach for the weekend - leaving landlocked atlanta tonight directly after work. i’m overflowing with excitement.

so - I’ll take this opportunity to share with you a song i wrote a long while ago.  it’s about going to the beach.  i like to think of it as a prophecy of big fun.  

Beach Spirals 

A HAPPY FUTURE MEMORY OF THE BEACH

the beach is whiter than anything
and wide enough to walk upon
and where it’s wet
the sky reflects
and we’ll draw giant spirals with our feet

the water is warmer than anything
and green enough to hypnotize
we’ll sing songs
all day long
and wallow in the glory of good times

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!

and if you see a shark
or a jellyfish
it’s OK
don’t get too scared
we’ll just take a break from swimmin’

the day at the beach is the best
but the night can be even better
we’ll all go up to our friends’ beach house
get drunk
and get it on with our girlfriends

let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!
let’s go to the beach!

ok! ok! ok! ok!

IMPOSSIBLE PHOTOGRAPHY

May 4, 2008 | Filed Under art, photo | Leave a Comment 

I figured out how to use the “photomerge” tool in photoshop today - it’s pretty neat.  I spun around in a circle while taking lots of pictures in my bedroom, ran the program on “auto” and this is what it came up with.  (I did clean it up a bit by cropping the weird amoeba shape into a square).

It’s not perfect - there are a lot of photos that it couldn’t figure out the placement on.  But I was pretty impressed with what it could do on it’s own - the floor especially is made up of probably 10 or 15 separate photos, which the program stitched together pretty flawlessly.  That weird blob in the middle is my feet.

I actually had a different “view” in mind while taking the pictures, and the program will allow you to manually place the photos in the layout you want, which it will attempt to blend as best as it can.  The result is not as smoothed, but it still works, and it’s a completely different effect.  View it large on my flickr to see what I mean.



FAIR WEATHER
