Jonathan Kearney - June 18th - 9:30am - Skype

I’m anxious to post on the blog, there’s so much I want to say, but i’m finding it strange to formally put things into words. Jonathan & I contemplated the blog as a time capsule ~ speaking to myself in the future. 

My work currently jumps from medium to medium, tool to tool, but the same narrative wants to get told. Jonathan suggested thinking about how these mediums could visually come together ~ embracing the fragmentation?

Some things in progress; 

family interview questions, further research into the the theoretical mathematics of spheres (use C4D sphere object properties to experiment/simulate/tweak? the theories). 

Intent(s)

Aims

  • To critically ponder on mythologies based in linguistic and cultural systems.

    • How does one choose to represent their own reality/identity?

    • To investigate the internal dynamics of Family and Familiarity.

    • To critically examine, through semiotics, philosophies built around faith(s). 

    • To get a better understanding of the collective self.  

  • To widen an understanding of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) through a series of interdisciplinary lenses, exploring concept(s) such as:

    • Empathy.

    • Trauma.

    • Reality.

    • Love.

  • To capture a string of thought during the creative process, further translating it as vividly as possible – using, Sound, Image, The Body and Texture as starting points.

  • To hypothesize digital software and hardware technologies as tools, much like a camera to a photographer, or a brush to a painter. 

  • To look deeper into the Virtual Portrait

Lenses

  • Neuropsychology

    • The study of the relationship between behavior, emotion, and cognition on the one hand, and brain function on the other.

  • Phenomenology

    • The science of phenomena as distinct from that of the nature of being. An approach that concentrates on the study of consciousness and the objects of direct experience

  • Epistemology (Ontology) 

    • The theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope. Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion.

  • Anatomy 

    • A study of the structure or internal workings of something.
