The complexity of the impermanence that fosters ambiguity in our lives. Everything changes except a persistent memory.

your world beginning | there’s never a dream i need to be

there is never a dream i need to be

an empty room
a distant memory;
everybody has somebody
to leave behind …

there’s never a dream i need to be


your world beginning | a history before now

Day 6 in the “Your World Beginning” series is entitled “A History Before Now.” This film has a more ambient feel to it than the previous “A Life of Contradictions and Disappearing Things. It is sparse in its visual content, while imploring some elements of poetic prose inspired by a fellow poet. It continues the theme of the exploration of daily life, with hints of ambiguity and historical musings as abstraction. Initially, when I created this series, I wanted it to be a distinct leap from my previous series entitled “Your World Disappearing,” giving birth to a new beginning. However, the emotional content that fueled the “Disappearing” series has slowly found its way into this series as well: ‘Everything changes except a persistent memory.’ To some degree, although everything is in constant flux–giving way to things disappearing and beginning simultaneously, there is an ambiguity and mundane existence to it all.

your world beginning | the beauty of untangled things

your world beginning

an emerging light
left over from a shadowed memory
your world disappearing ….
Ending
and now
your world beginning
with the beauty of untangled things

So it is time to move beyond “Your World Disappearing.” Time to discover the light that heals, that gives beauty and peace; a place to evolve, a future of untangled things … until the cycle repeats itself.

My latest post, from my new series entitled “Your World Beginning.” A series that will consist of video art and digital collage. An evolution of beauty emerging from the ambiguity of my previous series entitled “Your World Disappearing.”

He wrote
in fervent oscillation;
through the center that does not hold …

fingers bloodied and broken
the painful past
and uncertain future,
forged together
in this present moment,

penned with tears given to time
and his world disappearing …

My second video in my short film series under the title “Your World Disappearing”. Exploring ambiguity, and emotional constructs through the lens of ambient minimalism fused with organic and natural elements. “Through art I feel like subtracting”.

When history calls our names, will we remember | unpublished works

When history calls our names, will we remember | unpublished works

self-portraits
painted with our dreams …
now and forever,
spinning into history

snow
wind
cold

even here in the deep south; what a week it has been.

********************

2013 was a very good year for creativity and artistic exploration: I created a series of video art pieces, that I feel stretched the potential of my imagination. That exploration also enabled me to learn a variety of technical skills in editing within the creative aspect of visual and musical composition. Check out my “Experiment: Data Complex” series. Most notably, my latter sub-series “The World” (4 videos). But I digress, the purpose of this post is to introduce my latest published book entitled:

N E W D I G I T A L S C A P E S | V A R I A T I O N S

In 2013, my photographic and digital artwork could overall, be found, in the “Variations” series. A remix of imagery that explored ambiguity, memories, dreams, and emotional constructs. The book is a total of 140 pages and features over 100 images in a large portrait format. The link above will forward you to my bookstore @ Blurb publishing. There you will be able to access a 37 page preview.

And last but not least, I would like to thank all my fellow bloggers, whose support in 2013 has been a great inspiration.

not a new year, just another tomorrow

not a new year, just another tomorrow

In the decade of our youth;
timeless, breathless, endless …
we never paused; we never questioned,
the forever future
– until now
and the promise of a “New Year”
just fading into another tomorrow

outside my window | i made the journey into my own reflection

i thought I knew
