TIME and ways of marking it
give instructions to a machine to do something. and from the roughness, basicness, of what machine performs to us, it shows us, by contrast, what we are — organic, complex, subjective. Save
“construindo discursos”, meus digo isso olhando blog, e pensando como o que coloquei há 3 anos pode ser re-arrumado, (rearrumação de minha produção e/ou de produção de outros e /ou do mundo) constante re-pensar. como o caderno que g. meu amigo nao se importa de continuar depois de 5 anos, ou um desenho que g.

in my design work i’m normally not the initiator of the assignment. i interpret visually someone else’s message. in my design work am i an author? yes in the art work i am an author as well. to be author means to create a text this text can be a narrative it can be script […]
time reminds me of life. time is the most essential component of life. cinema is a language that captures time. cinema is also our mythology. it deals with lifes, people, emotions.
the day before yesterday I was with the flu. fever, tired body. slept bad, with alucinations. next day, after sleeping until 15:00, i was almost recovered. i felt as if resurfacing on the other side. the sickness was some kind of death sickness as the dark side (concept by Susan Sontag, ‘sickness as a metaphor’ […]
I started my research inspired by an early XX century brazilian artistic movement. It was called Anthropophagism (synonym for cannibalism). It is basis is the act of appropriation. The projects I envisioned were related to the use of computers to cannibalize current social, artistic and political issues. In other words, to automate the process of […]
que uniam poesia, sensibilidade em relação ao universo interior, em melodias complexas, esteticamente belas, que posso escutar enquanto cozinho o jantar.
it interests me, particularly concerning: repetition, loop, recursive, infinite, droste
nota confusa reading Herói de Mil Faces In most of mythologies, the images of misericordia e bless are as vivid as those of justice and wrath, keeping therefore the balance. I think: all that is created will be destroyed. so there is not so much a goal with the creation itself (in the long term). […]
segunda de manhã, meio perdido dentro de tudo que posso fazer e sem saber o que realmente quero. dai comecei a escrever, as memorias sobre meu pai. eu tinha um canal pra organizar minha cabeça as vezes bagunçada. por outro lado, as vezes me faz muito bem perambular pelo mundo não-verbal, por exemplo da música, […]
i make and build by pieces and construct (aesthetically but probably also conceptually) because this is how i look at things and internalize them. making as a way to internalize. tools as ways to see, hear, feel. therefore i have a fantasy: to be able to re make the reality that surrounds me. from nature, […]

the conversion of something from one form or medium into another : the translation of research findings into clinical practice. formal or technical the process of moving something from one place to another : the translation of the relics of St. Thomas of Canterbury. [from mac os dictionary] Translators always risk inappropriate spill-over of […]
works of art that rely on capturing reality in a medium (such as film, photography)
i think i can claim that a piece of mine (such as Auto-timer performance) has a cannibalistic approach (or appropriative nature, in other words) in it, if we agree with David Hockney that this piece of Van Eyck relies in collage as much as his own Pearblossom Highway does.
Appropriation may be thought of as one of the placement of elements in new context. In the visual arts, to appropriate means to adopt, borrow, recycle or sample aspects (or the entire form) of man-made visual culture. Art practices involve the ‘appropriation’ of ideas, symbols, artefacts, image, sound, objects, forms or styles from other cultures, […]
find time to think about crazy things. crazy projects. crazy ideas. write them down. think about them in the shower. insert dream gaps in the fast reality. lay down in the middle of the day. close the eyes. pretend there is none around. what do i dream about? what do i feel?

if computers get as smart as brains, then they will make assumptions and stupid mistakes as humans do. poeme numerique, baltan laboratories, david rokeby
leap frog: stick to one tool or set of tools for 3 years. because now there are too much money and resources and these make you keep changing tools and therefore solving technical problems instead of creative ones. stick to tools, create your own libraries and keep using them, as a language or toolbox. tools […]
when computer is in role, u have to place yourself in minimalism X maximalism. complexity is easy to produce with computer. sometimes the solution is in one or another pole. move back and forth between this poles and that is a kind of breathing of the work. poeme numerique, baltan laboratories, david rokeby
when you doesn’t smile after an artistic performance, you deprive the right of the audience to enjoy it. it is the responsibility of the artist to allow people to enjoy the work. avantagarde/edgy work can possibly make people feel they don’t quite understand it. by smiling, you help them. also often the artist doesn’t really […]
