Kenny Curwood put my work in his film program last week where I got to share the stage with Bradley Eros, Marie Losier, and Martha Colburn to name a few.  While I have been working on a score for my piece the live score was pretty hypnotic as well. I come in around 4:27….

sentences on conceptual art by Sol Lewitt

•September 11, 2011 • Leave a Comment

1- Conceptual Artists are mystics rather than rationalists.  They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach

2- Rational judgments repeat rational judgments

3- Illogical judgments lead to new experiences

4- Formal Art is essentially rational

5- Irrational thoughts should be followed absolutely and logically

6- If the artist changes his mind midway through the execution of the piece he compromises the result and repeats past results

7- The artists’ will is secondary to the process he initiates from idea to completion.  His willfulness may only be ego

8- When words such as painting and sculpture are used, they connote a whole tradition and imply a consequent acceptance of this tradition, thus placing limitations on the artist who would be reluctant to make art that goes beyond the limitations.

9- The concept and idea are different.  The former implies a general direction while the latter is the components.  Ideas implement the concept.

10- Ideas alone can be works of art; they are in a chain of development that may eventually find some form.  All ideas need not be made physical.

…….

the list goes on

Plato on Writing

“For this invention will encourage forgetfulness in the minds that use it because they will not practice their memory. Their trust in writing, produced by external characters which are no part of themselves, will discourage the use of their own memory within them. You have invented an elixir not of memory but of reminding and you offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom not true wisdom.”
