images for android phones | a spiral inward | prelude to form and data


We can only be who we are, and at one point that has to be enough.

In delineated dreams, we search for that which is truly us. And find that we are only ourselves ….

Today I continued to work on my latest video piece entitled Into Abstraction | Form and Data. Hence, the mention of it as a prelude in this post. In the creative process there seems to be a continuing presence of form and the collection of data. Form and data that can be found in the complexity of thought, inspiration, and imagination. It propels us and shapes our day around it. Almost as if it has a will of its own. As it most certainly does: Shaping beauty from the shadows of our subconscious and giving light to our conscious ambitions, ideas, ambiguities, and dreams.

  1. At first I was so taken by that spiral – that crystal-clear color with the red and grayish outlines along its curves – that I didn’t even notice the head of the male on the left side. It’s just amazing how you integrated this portrait into the abstraction of the whole piece! It really does conjure up a dreamlike state. Wonderful work as always, Walter!

    • Thanks Patricia. The self portrait photo was taken on the shore line at Virginia Beach. If you look closely you can see the surf in the image. You know I still see in my mind’s eye that wonderful piece you created with the two digital prints in it. Combining the various forms like that is a work of art indeed. Later this week, I will be posting my latest video piece in my Into Abstraction series. I hope you will check it out.
