Glitch in my Matrix

The artist must ever play and experiment with new means of arranging experience, even though the majority of his audience may prefer to remain fixed in their old perceptual attitudes…The role of the artist is to create an Anti-environment as a means of perception and adjustment.

Marshall McLuhan

Trying to think my way out of my own perceptual blinders is a losing battle. It’s like trying to lift myself by my own shirt-collar wearing a t-shirt. The mental models I seek to escape form the thoughts I think. Or that think me?

Artistic activity can sometimes reveal a glimpse beyond my preexisting point of view when I collaborate with the emerging work. Instead of entering with a firm idea of what I’ll end up with, I interact with the gestating work through multiple iterations. Sometimes that takes me to places I couldn’t imagine at the start.

Glitch, digital collage and abstract video have become my favorite way to half-awaken to the Matrix. One or more source images or videos transform transform through multiple glitch, photo-manipulation and editing iterations.

No Satori yet. Not even close. Micro-Satoris? Beats the alternative. ZZZZ.
